Sketching with 1 Line

Let your hand learn the lines.


Let's draw a rabbit in 1 minute with 1 line

Look at the animal closely. What are the main lines?
Which aspects are important, so that we recognize the rabbit? The shape of the ears and the nose? The way it sits on the ground. 

I'm sure, if I only drew the ears, you'd already have a good hint, what I am going to draw. So look at the picture and define the main characteristics, that makes it instantly recognizable as a rabbit.

And then: let your hand learn the lines.  

When you look at the animal, you see its shapes. As soon as you draw these shapes with your hand, you have already learned a lot - no matter the result.
Because this is the way your hand learns how to draw: it's about moving the pen on the paper and feeling the lines that are important for a rabbit sketch.

And don't judge the result. The quality of the lines will automatically enhance the more often you draw the motif.

In the mood for sketching now?

I truly hope so, as sketching is such a brilliant way to express feelings and experiences and to practice drawing skills at the same time.

I’m showing you now step by step, how to start a drawing. You’ll learn how to analyze a motif and how to start a drawing from scratch on a white sheet of paper. We will talk about proportions, about perspective, about shading and about really simple but helpful measurement tools.

 The course is based on the idea of training the muscle memory of the drawing hand. When you are sketching regularly for some minutes, your hand will learn the lines.

About the Author

Hallo, I'm an award-winning illustrator and drawing tutor from Austria. After great experiences in the Marketing and Database sector, I finally realised that I simply need to follow my enthusiasm and fascination for drawing and illustrating.  

What fascinates me most, is this way to communicate without using any words. So expressive, so global. And this leads me to my second fascination about drawing: the exchange with others, with you! In my drawing courses I simply love to see the enormous developments of each participant - initiated by exchange and practice. That's what I like to do here, too. 

The idea for this blog comes from the bottom of my heart: to get you close to drawing and to show you that you too can draw #drawinggang  It's all about learning to feel the drawing!
