How do other people's eyes influence your learning to draw?

An important notion in understanding why you didn't continue drawing after childhood is comparison with others. Drawing is not a competition, it's a moment for yourself, a personal and unique expression. By comparing yourself to others, you lose sight of the pleasure and personal satisfaction that drawing can bring. First, concentrate on your own progress, and if you're satisfied with the result, share it with others to inspire them.

Why learn to draw when artificial intelligence can draw better than me?

Don't compare yourself, learn from others. The same goes for intelligence, whether artificial or not. Focus on yourself to bring out the best in yourself. To illustrate this point, let's take an example: you enjoy walking, even though cars exist and are a more efficient way of getting around. However, you continue to walk because walking brings other benefits to your body and mind. Drawing works the same way. Just because someone or something draws better than you doesn't mean you have to stop. Drawing offers you unique and personal benefits, regardless of how you compare with others.

What are the drawing exercises for mindfulness and relaxation?

Mindfulness is the practice of paying intentional, non-judgmental attention to the present moment. It helps to reduce stress, improve concentration and foster an overall sense of well-being. By integrating drawing exercises with this practice, you can cultivate mindful presence while developing your artistic skills.

Meditative drawing

Objective To promote relaxation and concentration.

Exercise Sit comfortably with paper and pencils. Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths. Open your eyes and start drawing simple shapes (circles, lines, spirals) slowly and repeatedly. Concentrate on the feel of the pencil on the paper and let your thoughts drift away.

Careful observation

Objective Improving observation and presence in the present moment.

Exercise Choose an object in your environment (a plant, a piece of fruit, a decorative object). Spend a few minutes observing its details: texture, colors, shadows. Then draw the object, trying to capture these details accurately.

Gratitude through drawing

Objective Cultivating gratitude and well-being.

Exercise To start each day, draw something you're grateful for. It could be a person, a moment in the day or a simple object. Take the time to focus on the positive emotions it evokes.


Objective Promote relaxation and creativity.

Exercise First, draw a circle on a sheet of paper and fill it with repetitive, symmetrical patterns. Then, start at the center and work outwards. Finally, give free rein to your imagination while remaining focused on each stroke.

Drawing in nature

Objective Connect with nature and reduce stress.

Exercise: Go out to a park or garden. Then sit down in a quiet spot and draw what you see: trees, flowers, animals. Then concentrate on the sounds, smells and sensations of the natural environment as you draw.
