Make a simple frame from card to help you frame your drawings, and see how they'll look.
You will need:
|Ever seen an artist doing this?|
|It's a really good way of looking at something that you want to draw, and pick out the bit that you want to do.|
|A better way to do this is to cut a frame out of a piece of card, and use that.|
|If the frame is rectangular, you can also use it to decide if you want the picture to be sideways on ("landscape")...|
|...or tall, like this ("portrait")!|
|You can use the frame like a camera viewfinder, to help you focus on a particular detail - a part of a magazine cover, for example.|
|And if you tape a lolly stick to the frame, like this...|
|...you can pop it into a ball of sticky tack or modelling clay and position it so that it frames whatever you want to draw...|
|...like this vase of flowers.|
|Just draw what you see.|
Use the frame to make you focus on what it is that you want to draw.
Try it yourself!
