A quick post today to let you know how I am progressing with the exercises..

I did another set of still life with the various pencils attached to the 3 foot bamboo stick etc (as detailed in the previous post). Again, having little or no control over the pencil really removes the pressure I put on myself to create beautiful, finished pieces.  It’s also interesting to highlight some of the marks that I particularly like thereby adding some detail.

The next exercise involved taping two pencils or pen/pencil, in fact any combination of drawing implements together and drawing an object. This again produced some unexpected marks;  it almost felt like you were looking at what was beneath the surface of the object rather than just producing an outline.

Are there any exercises that you like to do to get the old creative juices flowing and the arm loosened up? Let me know – would love to give them a go!

Had an enjoyable visit to the Lakeside at Nottinham to see the Pop Art to Brit Art Exhibition but will tell you about that next time!
