Cultivating Your Drawing Skills
I believe drawing skills are never innate: when someone is a natural, what they really have are remarkable observational skills and the ability to apply them – in their case, through drawing (it could just as well have been espionage ;)). Drawing skills can be cultivated by anyone able to use their minds and hands. There are basically only two approaches to do this: theory (+practice) and observation (+studies).
:bulletred: Theory is a structured, organised approach, learning from someone more experienced who's laid it all out for us in a course, book or tutorial.
:bulletred: Observation is an organic, unpredictable approach, learning directly from the real world around us and gradually deriving principles from it.
Alone, they are both incomplete; trying to work with only one of them would be like trying to walk with one foot. Studying lays down a solid foundation, which remains abstract and limited until observation brings it to life with details and real-life application
