Practice Drawing Cherry Blossoms

People often see drawing artists as people that are just naturally good at drawing. The truth is that just like any other craft, drawing is a skill.

The more you do it, the better you’ll get. If you want to learn how to draw well, practice…practice…practice. If you want to get good at drawing cherry blossoms, I recommend sketching the flower often. Sketching for 20-30 minutes a day is a good start.
