Tips from the back of the Canson Drawing Paper Package: "One of the best ways to begin understanding the basic principles of drawing can be found in the everyday things around you. Find a variety of simple household items, such as fruit, a jar, vase or candle and arrange them together, any way you like. Pay attention to the light source, and how it creates a shadow on the opposite side of the objects. Start by sketching a loose outline on your paper of what you see, to give yourself a kind of "map" for the placement of the objects. Once you've done that, begin drawing the objects in more detail, adding shadows and light, and creating depth by shading the darker areas of the objects in your drawing. Your goal is to create a detailed work of art capturing as much detail as possible."
