How do I start?

First, you must buy a sketchbook! Second, you need to buy some pens and pencils. Afterward, you need to go to a location. It’s that simple! Usually, artists draw in their houses or residence. During the morning you can set aside an hour to do your drawing. The most important thing is to do it daily.  After a period of 30 days, you will develop a drawing habit. Before you begin warm up with some doodles, next you can draw from your head, finally, you can challenge yourself. For example, draw your hand. In other words, draw whatever you see. Specifically, draw what is easy, however, you should vary your environment.

For example go on sketching trips, such as a trip to the mall or a park.  In other words, just draw! For example, if go on a walk you basically have a drawing trip without even knowing it!  Altogether everything you do can be a sketching opportunity!
