If The Shoe Fits

The general consensus of established artists is if you want to improve your painting skills the number one best thing you can do is to practice your drawing skills.  So in that light, I have decided to keep my sketchbook handy and to spend some time each day practicing my drawing.  Then when I look back, I can see how my skills have improved.  I can already see an improvement over the past several months.  I can draw faster and a little more accurately than I could before.

So I would encourage anyone wanting to get better at painting to first pick up a pencil.

Have a great weekend!



  1. Do you know its something i always mean to do but can never really get in the habit of.I must try harder,thanks for the reminder.

  2. I totally agree. I think the drawing is foundational!
