I love finding easy pencil drawings that I can copy - and then I marvel at how clever I am, because I drew them!
I draw what I know I'm capable of producing and when I move on to more complex subjects, it amazes me that I can achieve a remote likeness! This obviously comes about because I continuously draw (which is the same as pratice) and it all works towards encouraging me to push boundaries.
A lot of my drawings don't work out but I remind myself that the next one will be an improvement on the last because that is the way it works. In the meantime, I keep copying simple drawings and loving every minute of it.
To begin, look for the type of easy pencil drawings like this lotus flower here - that is, ones with lots of white space inside and around them.
I think that the greatest benefit of this pastime is the basic tools that are needed to start.
All you need is a 2B pencil, an eraser and paper.
I use photocopy paper a lot because I find it easy to erase on that surface.
I also have a cheap sketch pad that I carry around with me.
I don't worry so much about the quality of the paper, these easy pencil drawings are for my practice purposes only. An extra benefit is that I don't worry about ruining the book and wasting money.
My favorite is a mechanical pencil with a 2B lead. It saves me time because I don't have to sharpen it and lose concentration.
They work by clicking the end of the pencil which pushes the graphite lead through the tip. The graphite leads come in different sizes, it doesn't really matter which one you use at the start - I use .5mm.
I consistently use 2 erasers. One is a good brand and the other is a kneadable eraser - neither of these is expensive.
I use the ordinary eraser to rub out large amounts of the drawing and I use the kneadable one to get at the finer parts without disturbing too much of the drawing.
The kneadable eraser is very soft and pliable. You can shape it into a fine point to get at finnicky bits. It doesn't leave a residue like the ordinary eraser, so it's cleaner to work with.
Later on, you will use an eraser to create features in your artwork - it's a very handy little tool!

It is no secret that drawing pencil sketches is the ultimate in freedom of expression.
Drawing and sketching are very similar except sketching is kind of liberating. I'm convinced it is another option to accomplish better drawing skills. Read where I previously discuss my interpretation of the difference between drawing and sketching.
My all-time favorite is landscape sketches...
I copied this image from an old book that has expired in copyright. My illustration isn't the same but I like to give credit to the original artist who saw the beauty in this scene.
Beginner Sketches To Draw
As I progress through the drawing, things end up out of place and probably out of proportion but I just make some adjustments here and there until it all seems to fit together.
I used the side of a 2B wood pencil lead to create the foliage in the background because I think that gives the illusion of depth with the blurriness of trees so far away.
The texture of my sketchpad also adds to the effect.
Just like learning to draw, there a few things that you need to keep in mind...

- make a mental note to scribble quickly,
- remind yourself that there is no erasing,
