Here in this pencil drawing the artist has shown the example of pencil lining. The use of technique of lining is used in such a way that it has worked like shading. The eyes of cat define the whole mood of the portrait.

However for the beginners, the choice of the objects to draw hardly matters. We can choose anything lying in our immediate surrounding: it can be your table; it can be books lying on table or your table clock. If you want to go into details of the drawing the objects like your wet towel put on back of the chair or the hanging pyjama would be good subjects to draw.

Anything you like, anything you feel inspired from can ignite the artistic flame hidden inside of you.

Drawing Tips: Before starting to draw, make it sure about the size of the object and how far it is lying from you, near to you or at a distance.

LEARN DRAWING: Birds and Animals in Zoo

Theme: Pencil Drawings of Flying and sitting Birds.

If you are an artist and have passion to draw the objects existing in your immediate surround, it is very difficult to prevent yourself from trying to draw the animals and birds on paper board.

Movingline, Drawing by Channing at Boston Public Library, originally uploaded by renzodionigi. It is hard to draw the animals, live. You may not find much trouble in drawing from the photos, but the art of drawing live has its own rapture. I believe that the art of drawing is a live art rather than the art of memories and dreams!

Drawing Animals Live

Look at this pencil drawing. The beauty of nature and the energy embedded in the innocent birds are wonderfully depicted in this drawing. While we draw from a live scene, we have to notice the curves of the animal or the bird perfectly. If we recreate the curves and linings of the bodies of the bird we can hear a definite rhythm in that drawing. The artwork give above is not a mere pencil drawing; it is a full-fledged artwork in itself. In this drawing, the artist has infused the intimacy of her art symbolized by images of the waves and the birds flying nearby.

For me such drawings are very homely subject, a familiar task. And for doing this wonderful task I have t remain well-equipped, too. So while going to Zoo with children, I keep with me this material: One 4B pencil, a good eraser and at least a dozen white papers of A4 size. Children do their job; enjoying the garden and looking at swans and teasing the monkeys. And I do my job: sitting in front of a cage of either an ostrich of a peacock. These birds have populated very thick collection of my sketches.
