Just a quick update on my drawing exercise progress so far…

In this next exercise I concentrated on drawing with my non-dominant hand whilst, at the same time, only looking at the paper for a few seconds at a time, the majority of the time my focus was on the object (a Lladro figure of a vet). I tried various mediums. On the last attempt I went back with my dominant hand and highlighted some of the areas I particularly liked. I know it’s just for fun and the images are far from perfect – proportions leave a lot to be desired – but doing these exercises has really got me over my’white paper syndrome’.

In fact, I’ve been really encouraged and have even been messing around with ink and charcoal. As you can see I made marks with charcoal and then dropped ink on top, blowing it around and leaving to dry. I then went back over with the charcoal and this is the result,,,
