|10 minute observational drawing using right hand|
This first drawing was difficult to get the proportion correct. I started from the top but didn't really have a strategy to get the correct placement.
|5 minute, left handed observational drawing|
This exercise was difficult to do with any precision as I am not left handed but the lines were looser than the first observational drawing and more interesting and quirky.
|Blind drawing, 3 mins, using right hand|
This technique produced even more interesting charcoal marks and is has the loosest lines. In some ways it is more successful than the straight observation using the predominant hand.
|Exploring negative shapes|
This exercise was challenging as the negative space had to be thought through to give the suggestion of the still life arrangement simply by darkening around the objects
