Learning To "See"

When I was in high school the best advice my art teacher gave me helped me understand how to draw better. Most people draw contour lines – heavy outlines – of their subject.

The best way to start learning is this: Draw what you see, not what you know is there. There is great reason that typically when starting out you’ll be asked to draw still life of 3D shapes.
