50 Ways to Draw Your Beautiful, Ordinary Life contains 50 easy, illustrated step-by-step lessons on how to draw a whimsically curated list of the things we see and interact with every day: a bouquet of flowers, a watering can, a cat, mittens, favorite plants and vegetables, a cup and saucer, a kitchen table, the list goes on and on. The lessons take us line by line from early sketch to finished drawing, with space alongside for the reader to draw the same. And unlike other beginner’s drawing guides, every lesson stems from each artist’s particular sensibility. This book is not about learning shapes, but how to create beautiful images with quirkiness and personality. The focus is not on perspective or shading, but the mindful pleasures of doing creative work.
We’re offering our crafty readers an extract so you can learn how to draw your very own sewing box from start to finish!
