Hello and welcome to my blog!
Drawing may seem difficult for beginners. And it’s hard to find a trusted source of information you can rely on. And that is why Drawing Fundamentals is here.
Drawing ability can be learned and developed, it does not depend solely on innate talent. Everyone can learn to draw with proper practice and patience.
My name is Debora, and I’m the founder of Drawing Fundamentals. I’m a civil engineering technician. During the school training, I acquired the basic knowledge necessary for freehand and technical drawing, which I further developed and perfected during my years in the profession.
Drawing is an important part of my life. The process of creation relaxes me and it makes me happy to see the finished artwork.
THE GOAL OF THIS WEBSITE
Drawing is about representing the three-dimensional space around us on a two-dimensional drawing surface. To do this, however, it is essential that you master the basics of drawing, on which you can then build further.
To start learning, you will only need a few basic, inexpensively available tools: a couple of graphite pencils and erasers, drawing paper, and a pencil sharpener.
The principles of drawing remain the same and are necessary to learn whether you want to work with a pencil, pen, brush, or a digital device in the future.
With my blog, I want to help anyone who wants to learn to draw, whether you’re just looking for a creative hobby or want to make a living from your art.
I hope you find useful information while browsing my website and you come back often because this site is always growing.
THE IMPORTANCE OF DRAWING SKILLS
Man has been using drawing to express himself since ancient times, as evidenced by the cave drawings of Lascaux and Altamira. Drawing forms the basis of all branches of fine art, including painting, sculpture, and architecture, but a drawing itself is a work of art.
Let me quote Michelangelo Buonarotti (1475-1564), one of the greatest artists of all time:
“Let this be plain to all: Design, or it is called by another name, drawing, constitutes the fountain-head and substance of painting and sculpture and architecture and every other kind of painting, and is the root of all sciences. Let him who has attained the possession of this be assured that he possesses a great treasure… ”
“Let whoever may have attained to so much as to have the power of drawing know that he holds a great treasure.”
