Any techniques on improving observational skills and making them stronger? I know its properly a case of just drawing all the time, but I have to admit I do find drawing in class, on the train etc. quite difficult, my drawings are always very simple and quite bad in comparison to when I use images for reference and spend more time on something. I tend to rely on tweaking the image till it looks presentable. My life drawings have been quite bad lately aswell @___@ I have been told my observational skills need improving.
