Of what shapes are the things around you made? Sure, your computer screen is probably made up of rectangles. But what about a bird, or a tree, or a person?
Drawing simple objects can be pretty easy.
You would probably have little difficulty drawing your computer screen or a straight-backed chair for example. Those objects are mostly made from simple shapes like rectangles, and those shapes are easy to draw. Likewise, drawing the sun or a car tire is as difficult as drawing a circle.
What about if you wanted to draw something a little more complicated, like a leaf or a bird? What if you wanted to draw something really complicated, like a person's face?
Stick with drawing simple shapes! The secret is to break down the more complex objects like birds and people into simple shapes that you can easily master.
Take a look at a video showing an artist doing exactly that. As you watch, draw the individual shapes into which he breaks down the image of the bird and write down the name of the shape. Watch the video, How to Draw by Finding Basic Shapes within Objects (EmptyEasel), and follow along by drawing the separate shapes. Feel free to pause the video or go back to review in order to make your drawings:
