The simple art of tracing

When I was a kid…

Like so many other children I had a vivid imagination. And along with that imagination came the desire to draw. Now when we all first start out drawing, most children’s pictures look pretty much the same. Later down the line, we notice some people really have a talent for this artform.

From time to time, I still like to doodle a bit but would never be one that someone could reasonably call good at drawing. Aside from some silly cartoon sketches like the one below, I’ll just stick with by skill set shooting portrait photos and writing poetry books. I’ll leave drawing to the experts.

Which all that being said, there is one thing each of us can to do sort of “cheat” if you will when it comes to drawing. Get yourself a nice photo of what you’d like to draw, go out and buy a pad of tracing paper and trace the heck out of that picture.

You can always start slow with something like the horse below. And after that, move on to a more challenging adventure like the image at the bottom of this post.

Perhaps you or I may not have the natural ability to draw like the masters of the art but we can at least try something close.

A simple tracing effort suitable for beginners.

Something a bit more advanced.
