What is the first step you usually take when you start drawing? You almost certainly start thinking. By thinking about what a finished piece will look like. How proud you will be of it once you have mastered the art of drawing.

I think you don’t think about how you will start the painting itself, you just think about what it will be like after you draw it. Right?

Maybe you’ve already done a lot of paintings, but every time you paint someone else’s face, it just looks like a horrible, funny and embarrassing corpse.

But every time you sit down to make another picture of a human face, you think, “All I need to do is get used to it. I’ll get this in the end.” And yes. You will only get better as long as you keep trying.

But there are better ways to practice it, and I think I can tell you how to do it better. It’s hard to paint a face that looks real, but not because you’re still too scared to draw, but because you’re not drawing the first image you’re trying to recreate.

In fact, what you do is to draw what your brain expects you to do, what the final clip will look like. You probably don’t spend anywhere near most of the time looking at the real thing, comparing it to what you draw at the time, and whether it would look like a real face.

So, don’t get frustrated with yourself for not trying “hard enough for anything like that. Instead, try this. Change the original image. Turn it upside down.

Heh, stay with me. Yes, keep it low.

Now try to draw

It will be difficult, I hope. Maybe you don’t even know where to start, maybe your mind is still a little confused that … … how wrong it is to draw this face, looking down.

Don’t worry, you’ll get used to it. Right now, your brain just doesn’t know what to look for in the world. And that’s fine. Because it means you can’t be fooled into expecting what the final picture will look like. There will be no single clue as to how this will turn out.

And that means you are free to draw exactly what you are looking at in the first picture. Naturally you will spend more time and focus on each part of the drawing, how you draw it, and how it compares with the image you are using.

And naturally you would think that drawing is really bad. Even if you make good progress and are nearing the end, it may still be bad for you. Because your brain can’t see you yet. It doesn’t look like anything you’re familiar with, anything as far away as what you originally thought.

But go ahead. Keep going one step at a time, drawing small details, blurting out all the right places … and not turning it over until you’re done.

Now compare this with the first picture, and compare it with your old drawings. You are sure to see a big difference. Which may not be the best art, or even the closest to it.

That’s where the habit comes in. It is a place where you can learn all the great techniques for realistic painting, and get all the right painting materials.

But now you have set yourself up for good with your drawing. Naturally you will have a better focus and be better able to see what you are trying to draw.

Do this with all the photos from now on. Always, not so much at first, but over time, try to draw a negative image upside down. Try and see how much you have improved in your first episode when you have re-drawn the “right” way up.

And don’t give up! This first step is one of the most important, by building a positive attitude and mental strength. Because drawing a beautiful, photorealistic image, especially something as detailed as human faces, takes time. Time and patience.
