Observational drawing is considered the building blocks for any art piece, design or illustration. Once you have basic observational and sketching skills, ideas can be conveyed, artworks can be drafted and illustrations can be realised.

The ability to break down what we see and consider different ways to view is an important part of observational drawing. Equally as important is learning to translate your vision to your hand, to paper and tailoring your techniques/materials to suit your subject.
