At the end of this post, you will see a few suggestions of Step by Step books which are another great way for practising drawing skills and learn basic drawing techniques.

But, for now, let’s see a few ideas to start from the basics. Relax and have fun!

1. Line Leaves

Try practising these techniques:

  • Use tracing paper (print the image or use directly in your computer/tablet screen)
  • Switch between looking at the image and the paper you are using to draw
  • Try drawing without looking at the paper. Keep your eyes in the image and let your hand draw what you see
