Drawing Lab - Lesson 1
Evening all :)
Cameron over at Paint Myself Pretty has set herself the task of working through Drawing Lab by Carla Sonheim and is calling for people to join her. The book contains 52 creative exercises - to last you a year. This is my take on lesson 1. The idea is to set yourself up, preferably in bed, leaning on a pillow or your duvet, and draw around 30 cats. Well, when I go to bed I'm making Zzzzzzzzz's before my head hits the pillow. What I did do was lean on a sofa cushion and switched between using my dominant and non-dominant hand.
Strangely, I preferred the cats I did with my non-dominant hand and so used these to re-draw and add some colour. I used my watercolour paints.
I like that they're a little bit wibbly wobbly and scraggly - they look like they have attitude to me. I can see why it is suggested - it certainly makes you think less and just draw.
What do you reckon - fancy playing along? I'll be doing a full review on my thoughts about the book in a day or two - almost finished reading it.
Thanks for stopping by :)
