Pencil drawing for beginners: In this art tutorial video I use my extensive art teaching experience to show beginners how to draw using edges not outlines. Learning these simple basic techniques in a step by step approach will improve your drawing. The art tutorial explains how to draw using edges rather than outlines for a more effective drawing. The video is aimed at beginners and those wishing to extend their drawing skills. I draw with a block of graphite, but you could do the same with chalk, charcoal or pastel. Taking a piece of graphite between fingers and thumb I exert more pressure on one side rather than pressing equally. This is how the edge is created. There are a couple of exercises to cover and practice in this drawing basics tutorial and in the next video I shall take the idea further.
