Why Artist Drawing Patterns?

Drawing grid patterns are a tools or method in early stages of learning to draw. Think of them as stepping stones to reach a higher level in your future artworks. Basically drawing patterns are to help one see how to break down an art subject in order to render that art subject more accurately and realistically.

Many in the beginning stages of learning to draw become frustrated and give up on drawing. Artist grid drawing patterns act as a bridge to cross over and find that one can draw with practice. At some point in time a novice artist will learn to see the shapes and patterns of their art subjects with practice. Even a many great artist have used artist grids to make masterful works.

Move Over People Oil Painting

This is an artwork that has been on the easel way too long. I have bounced back and forth on this art piece due to many things and once again it is in the studio. I'm an artist and this is what many artist do.

I've been updating the "Move Over People" web page by moving each State flower while fixing the code descriptions to the right column. Also I've added the section "Highway Facts from Other Soucres" to the web page.

This is an oil painting based on Move Over Laws which have been passed in each State in the United States of America. These laws where inacted to saves the lives of those who work on these vast stretches of concrete and asphalt and also all individuals traveling these highways may it be by automoble, truck, bus or other motorized means. Overview of oil painting Updated.

The "Move Over People" oil paintng is based on a simple technique as are the Move Over Laws passed are easy to follow if one is attentive the operation of their motor vehicle in a proper way. Each state is represented by their state flower. The question is can you find your State flower in the "Move Over People" oil painting?




Lillium Artwork

Step 1 - Artwork Preparation

Made some test art lesson video's about how the cleaning process of the artist reference photo is done before creating a lily flower drawing pattern. Many more will be added as I learn more about the software program's functions. The first videos can be seen at this link of my Draw-N-Paint Facebook page. Comments are welcomed.

The drawing pattern is next to be created which you will be able to download once it is organized into a PDF file. You'll find it located on the artist grids drawing page when completed.

Painting the Lilies will be in a landscape composition with a waterfall in the background. I prefer what I call the zig zag layout on a rules of third. I will be setting up a new artist pattern for this artwork on a golden ratio canvas. But first will be some sketches to construct the art composition.

I've setup a drawing surface on a piece of card stock to construct the art composition.

A new artist drawing pattern is to be added to the Artists Grids page.

Step 2 - Sketching in the Art Elements

(1) I've learned some of the most wonderful artworks include one important ingredient not to be over looked and that is light. Without it you would not have your art subject well defined. Placement of radiant light in different areas of the composition can make all the difference in the world.

(2) But in order to do so, first I need to setup a thumbnail sketch sheet. And for that I use a card stock eleven by eight and a half drawing a line at the seven inch mark in landscape view. This provides a golden ratio composition layout to work with which will fit nicely onto a golden ratio canvas. Then I need to divide the sheet in the rules of third with light pencil lines to further set out where the art elements will be drawn in.

(3) The thumbnail sketch begins with a stream in the background. I started sketching in the upper right rules of third area of the composition. I drew the flow of water so that it moves to the left of the composition and down slightly. This is to help the eye move into the direction of the Lily flower drawn in the lower rules of third area.

I like drawing the art elements this way because it automatically makes one look at the Lily flower and then moves the view up towards the upper right of the composition at the beginning of the stream. It creates distance in the artwork's beginning. This sketch layout doesn't appear flat but has motion and depth so the remaining drawing has a good start to it.

Step 3 - Color Pencils for Hue Development

Step 4 - Oil Painting on a Golden Rule Canvas


"After the Storm"

Concept of Oil Painting

Many people have given much thought as to where this world is going and looking at currnet events it doesn't really paint a preatty picture. But by reading one can learn that there will be a wonderful out come that is shortly to take place. "After the Storm" is an oil painting reflecting what reality will be like and away from this world which is a dream. No one can tell exactly what it will be like but we can get a sense of that new world when we read about it.

So there will be smiles, clouds with silver linings, fields a glowing with golden flowers and refreshing water drops running off green lush plants down grassy slopes into refreshing clean streams.



Art Video's

I've ordered a cellphone stand for recording art video's. Some of these art video's will be published live on Facebook. First thing is to get the bugs worked out of the system so some test runs will be done to tweak them a little.


Ocean Walker Oil Painting

Sometime ago while out whale watching I happend to snap an image of a bouy from the ships deck. Seems that this would be a making of an interesting oil painting that I'll call "Ocean Walker". There are some changes in the composition's structure but none the less a wonderful painting for those who love the sound of ocean waves and the fragrance of an ocean breeze.

This a seascape painting to take you back memoriable times at the ocean. In your mind feel the movement of the boat as it cross the ocean waters and listen to the seagulls as they fly overhead.

The background land area received some paint brush color adjustments and the buildings where brushed to be more defined. You may notice the ocean water received some highlights of warmer colors.

Overview Art Lesson of Amaryllis Flower

Graphite Pencil Art Lesson Page

I have setup the artist overview page of the Amaryllis flower so that you can follow along. As I draw and oil paint the Amaryllis art subject I will update it's progress and document the many steps to complete this artwork.

There will be a Pencil Section of just graphites, an art section with Colored Pencils and a final section of Artist Oil Paints on canvas. I intend to relate each step of the process along the way.

I really feel this process works well. This is because it gives a view of the artworks foundation early in the beginning by understanding the differences between the shaded and highlighted areas. Along with this is learning of the structure of the Amaryllis flower. Learning more about it helps in completing a more realistic oil painting in the end.

I hope you will return to see the Amaryllis' progress.

Golden Ratio is 1.61803398875

From the smallest to the greatest biological systems and inanimate objects you can see this measurement in creation everywhere.

How to Draw Art Lessons with Puzzles

Many people have trouble drawing and sometimes give up on their efforts to be an artist. One art method that works to help individuals to move on to being a good artist is to learn how see as some artists see.

Artist drawing grids is one art method that many famous artists have used to see accurately so that their artwork becomes more realistically created. And more enjoyable in creating.

Have you ever heared of terms like distance, white space or negative space? As you draw you will find these terms are used quite often when using this art technique. Some call it drawing from the right side of the brain. That's when you lock out the logical side of the mind. Artist drawing patterns is just one tool to help in doing so.

You should try doing one. Make a grid and give it a try.



Artist Pattern Lessons

Free online art lessons are created starting with grids. Why art grids? Art grids take you back to the basics and let you see proportionally. That is they let you see shapes and sizes or the building blocks in the foundation of an artwork creation.

Art grids work like a bridge in learning. Throughout the years as you grow to adulthood you're taught art up to a certain point during your early school days. Then the art lessons stop and you have to pick it up art on your own. I liken art grids to a bridge or an easy means to get started once again. You will find artist patterns listed on the Art Drawing Grids page of Draw-N-Paint.com. Enjoy them and have fun using them.
