Drawing Techniques

There are a few basic techniques that all artists use when drawing, whether they realize it or not. These techniques involve the use of line, shape, value, texture, and color. By understanding and utilizing these techniques, you can improve your drawings and create more interesting and realistic artwork.

-Line: Line is one of the most basic elements of drawing. It can be used to create both rough and smooth textures, as well as to suggest volume and form. To create a line, you simply need to make a mark on your paper with a pencil or other drawing tool.

-Shape: Shape is another basic element of drawing. Shapes can be created by using lines to enclose an area on your paper. Shapes can also be created by combining multiple lines or by using value or color to suggest an area on your paper.

-Value: Value refers to the darkness or lightness of a color. Values can be used to create the illusion of three-dimensional forms on your paper. To create a value, you need to use a pencil or other drawing tool to darken or lighten an area on your paper.

-Texture: Texture refers to the way that a surface feels when it is touched. To suggest texture in a drawing, you need to use lines or values in a way that creates the illusion of a textured surface.

-Color: Color can be used to add interest and realism to drawings. To add color to a drawing, you need to use colored pencils, markers, or paints.

Practice Makes Perfect

Arrange an assortment of Crayola® crayons within reach. Use old, dulled crayons for the best results. Preheat a hair dryer on low heat, and test it on scrap paper first to be sure the heat is not too hot.

Press an unwrapped crayon vertically onto the paper, and hold it there with light pressure. Apply heat from the hair dryer about 6 inches away from the crayon. Move the hair dryer back and forth until the crayon begins to drip. Experiment with different colors and placements on your paper to create interesting designs.
