This is a mistake many starting artist ( especially those who are self taught) make when they start to  paint. Some may argue that one can start studying art anywhere but we feel it is best (will save you time) if you know how to draw first.

   Many of us ( including myself) have made the mistake of jumping into painting without having a strong foundation in drawing. So if you are wondering at times why your paintings or art may not look as great as you would wish: perhaps it is due to the fact that you need a stronger foundation in drawing. Painting is an extension of drawing. The parallels between drawing and painting are even more apparent if you try to paint in gray scale. An example of this parallel is with values. When you draw you learn about the ranges of values like highlights, cast and form shadow, reflective light etc., well these principals still carries on to painting. When you learn how to draw you increase your observation and knowledge,and like I stated this knowledge carries on when you paint.

    This piece of advice is a small one but very important. So if you are painting and you feel that you have perfected a painting technique, but you still feel as if your art is not what you wish...well try drawing more and it will have a big impact on your paintings.

Remember stay beautiful ;)
