You Absolutely Can Draw a Straight Line, and Here’s How:

I learned this technique from a watercolor artist who suggested that you use your arm, not your wrist, to draw a straight line. 

✏️Hold your pencil and pull your arm towards your body, keeping your hand and wrist straight. Now you have your whole body engaged in the process. 

✍️You can use this technique to draw straight lines in any direction. Think of your hand, wrist, and arm as a single unit. 

🎨In art class they call this “drawing from the shoulder.” Practice drawing lines over and over again. You’ve got this!
