Hi James,

I apologize that you did not get a sooner response. May I ask you a few questions?

Have you drawn before or are you simply looking to learn how to draw?

Do you draw now?

Do you live alone or with others?

What is your city/state?

Hello James,

I'm a painter, and I also draw and sketch. I've always been a doodler, but about 15 years ago, I started drawing and painting more seriously. Previously, I was under the impression that you had to be in school or get some type of degree in order to be able to paint or draw, but one day I took my daughter to an art store to get some things for a school project. I was drawn to the aisle that had painting supplies, canvases, paintbrushes, etc. As I walked down that aisle, it occurred to me that I could buy painting supplies if I wanted to! What would stop me?

From that point on, I was a painter. (smile) Granted, I do think you can learn more techniques if you take painting or drawing classes. The Magnolia Senior Center in Long Beach offers drawing as a class. You can also look on ebay.com and amazon.com for drawing books that teach basics. If you order from Amazon, for each book you look up, they have a link where you can buy used books for a cheaper price. I buy a lot of books this way.

The most important thing is to go out and buy papers, pads, erasers, pencils and all of the things you will want/need to draw and then just DO IT. :) Set aside time every day to draw, and the more you do it, it stands to reason the better you will get. Look around for different classes you can take here and there. Look and see if there's an art club in your community, and if not, maybe you can start one. Try different techniques, for example, set up a table with a light, a bowl of fruit and a statue and try to draw it. Try to draw something stationary that you can see out of your window. If you go out, take your camera, and take pictures of interesting things you would like to draw, and when you get home you can print them out and try to draw them

I hope this helps and I hope you start drawing today! Let me know if you want to talk more.

all the best
