You Can Draw, Why Not Try?

I love the "can-do" attitude that can be found in so many of our vintage Walter Foster Publishing books. Walter T. Foster truly believed that anyone could draw. It just takes a little patience, a pencil, and practice, practice, practice. It's amazing what can happen as your muscle memory for drawing develops.

From the vintage book Drawing Simplified:

On setting up a still life:

"When placing fruit, flowers or any still life, arrange it so no two are placed alike. If you are not used to drawing, draw one apple at a time and shade in with pencil or charcoal."

Still lifes are great for drawing or for painting. Start with a sketch and see where your creativity takes you. Try this lesson from Drawing Still Lifes to get started on sketching pears.
