Developing your drawing skills is something that is a lifelong process.
As a pyrographer, I can’t stress enough about the necessity of drawing skills, and how a good foundation of knowing how to draw and developing a drawing skill that will greatly improve your
pyrography skills. This is something that I continue to work on, not only because it is enjoyable to me but also because I know what I lack in skill and the only way to improve is to keep at it.
Keeping a sketchbook and a pencil handy is all you need, it is portable, you don’t need electric, you can even take it out and make a 5 minute sketch over your lunch break at work.
I have heard so many people, even pyrography students, tell me that “they can’t draw”. In lieu of me writing a tome on the benefits of drawing and telling you until I am blue in the face that you certainly can if you give it time and practice, let me direct you to this sweet encouraging animation I found.
This says it all and so much better than I can.
Art has always been a part of my life, and I have worked in many different mediums.
