Draw a Picture With Ingenuity,

Add Flair, and You Have a Knockout

Draw a Picture of Anything
You Have a Passion For!

You can draw a picture of anything you can see or imagine. Barns, cats, automobiles, people, dragons—you name it, you can draw it.

You probably started out doodling to pass the time but before you knew it, you started drawing pictures whenever something caught your eye.

Pictures are symbols of the things they represent. If you draw a picture and someone recognizes it as being a girl on a bicycle, for example, your picture is a success, assuming you really meant to draw a girl on a bicycle, not an artichoke. On the other hand, if you're 20 years old and still drawing stick figures, you appear to have a lack of courage and imagination.

 You can draw pictures of a robot using only a couple of spheres and some boxes. When well done, this makes a knockout drawing. On the other hand, sketching a circle with some misshapen rectangles attached to it really lacks imagination. Take that next step beyond the obvious and challenge yourself.

For example, copying a picture of a fuzzy bear from a coloring book qualifies as a bad picture, especially if the eyes have an indefinable squint. For the same reason, stick figures are examples of bad pictures, especially for anyone above the age of 5 or 6. Stick figures have a certain sparse elegance but they are not the stuff of real drawing even when circles and ovals are added as hands and feet. Lollipop trees are in the same category.

Anything can make a fantastic subject if you want to draw pictures. Celtic crosses based on old Irish stonework have an appeal for many people.

Classic automobiles and airplanes are other favorite subjects. People holding hands and walking on the beach is a common theme for those who draw pictures. A field surrounded by hedgerows and lit by an afternoon sun takes a bit of work to get the shadows just right, but you can draw it when you know how.

The first time you draw a picture of something you’ve never attempted before, the result might not please you. Keep at it. Don’t be lazy and settle for rectangle-and-circles automobiles, cross-eyed bears, and lions that resemble gerbils—even though sometimes this can lead to a load of fun!
