HOW TO ENJOY YOUR DRAWING

I always got lots of questions from my followers that ,
"I can't draw "
"I can't draw things that look realistic" 

People thing drawing is hard,but the real fact is maximum times you make it harder with your own mind.These mental obstacles stop us from learning and bring needless frustration. If you understand them ,then you will free to learn.
Maximum people not working very hard.The sad part is they work less but want to become famous artist,want more likes,comments.Whenever they didn't get all this,they failed miserably,day by day they loss their self confidence,not being serious about making it work,start to making excuses,procrastination etc etc.

Being successful as an artist involves a lot of hard work,consistency,persistence,have lots of patience,skills of observation.It is not easy if you are trying to make a living of your art.

Persistence is particularly important as it takes a very long time to master the skills to be satisfied with your own work,that is why it is important to keep the process fun so making Art doesn't become too boring.Enjoy the process of making art.If you enjoy the process then day by day you will definitely improve your skill.
Here i am giving you some tips what i always applied in my own case.

1) DAILY SKETCH HABIT :-

The point is to sketch everyday,not to turn out master pieces but the daily sketching will surely improve your drawing abilities & its always not necessary to share with the world.Starting each day with a quick sketch to improve your drawing abilities.Its your own creation ,its your own piece of art ,enjoy each and every moment.
What am i doing differently this time to ensure that i will stick with my new little (A5 or A6)sketchbook habit......I made a goal to do one sketch a day in my sketchbook & i did & uploaded day by day sketches in my blog.Now i m going to set my another goal from tomorrow,to draw at least one sketch daily.

2) ALWAYS HAVE FUN :-

I always try to focus on enjoying the process,not on the end result.Don't be hurry to complete your art.The result is not always the main point of making art.While drawing i always spend a good time,expressing myself,always try to learn something new,always enjoying every stroke of my drawing. Remember if you don't like the end result,at least you have learned what not to do the next time & this can be a very valuable lesson.

3 BELIEVE IN YOURSELF :-

Having confidence & believing in yourself is paramount for success to come.If you don't have the confidence to believe in yourself,then you can't do anything.
Believing in yourself creates positive energy.Accepting and believing in yourself is extremely empowering, with great power.As you begin to expect the best you will start to see things happening that are perfectly aligned with your desires & goals.

4) ONCE YOU START COMPLETE IT :-

You can restart the same drawing many times until you get it right but don't give up & complete your task. Try to experiment with different styles,you might be less critical of the results.
You can hold a pencil,pen or brush & make marks with it.
You can draw simple things like your books,laptop,pen,pencils,table ,chair,bus,car,bicycle,fruits,vegetables,flowers etc etc.
You can draw everything just believe in yourself that u will do & take one step at a time.
If you expect that drawing skill will come to you automatically ,then you are totally wrong.Its all about practice practice practice & practice.If you practice long and hard ,with time it gets more & more automatic for you.

5) AVOID PROCRASTINATION :-

Procrastination is something many people suffer from daily.Procrastination is not a disease,it's just a mindset that  can be changed. 
Typical procrastination excuses we tell ourselves :-
" i 'll do this tomorrow,today i m not feeling good to draw anything"
"there's not enough time to do this today"
main excuse "i can't draw"

How to overcome Procrastination :-
Open your sketch book & start your sketch immediately,if you have idle time.Always tell yourself you only need to sketch for 5 minutes to get yourself started but once you are in the process of drawing,you usually stick with it for longer.
Once you axtually start something & get  into the flow of it,you'd be surprised how easy it is.Don't think too much about starting something.Getting that first start is vital.
Remove all destructions from your environment.eat well,sleep well & most important always be happy.
Always keep your thoughts positive.You will feel better,you will be more active,more optimistic.
Now sit down,open your sketch book & draw whatever you like to draw.
Enjoy your drawing.
