Pencil Drawings

Candle Drawing

These pencil drawings have no set category or theme for where they belong, so altogether they make up a nice jumbled assortment.

Is there a tiny part of you that says "I'd really love to know how to draw"? Well, I am here to show you that it is very achievable and there is no time like the present!

Just follow along with me and copy these basic images. If you enjoy copying, then you are in for a great time.

Scroll to the bottom of this page to find the selection of links for a whole range of things like drawings of crosses or flames -- they are here for you to copy or ideal for use in all crafty type projects.

Where To Start?

If you are teaching yourself to draw, I recommend starting with graphite because it is a forgiving medium.

If you make a mistake, there is no drama, simply erase the mistake and continue on.

I always use either a mechanical or "B" grade pencils. My sister gave me a lovely "B" sketching set and I use it nearly everyday.

Select your preferred topic or subject and then find something with lots of white space in and around it.

I started off drawing cartoon animals and other characters because I found that was the best subject for me to tackle. I was inspired to do more once I saw that I managed to get a good likeness.

The majority of pencil drawings represented on this site are the ones I did when I was learning.

When you think about it, the more you practice writing, the neater it becomes -- and it is exactly the same with drawing.

I will always remind you to keep on putting the date on your drawings because I think it is an important part of your training.

You will feel very proud of yourself when you look back at the drawings you did at the start and how they look now. Of course, that comparison won't mean as much if you forget to note the dates :(

Help Is Here!

One of my favorite drawing books is called Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain by Betty Edwards.

Make sure you read it a couple times over the course of a year or 2, because it is amazing how much difference it makes when you re-read the book. Somehow, things just make more sense and it is very helpful advice.
