Drawing Exercises For The Uninspired
I originally wanted to do this series on drawing exercises because I was uninspired and fed up and struggling to draw. There were hissy fits and temper tantrums happening. I threw all my toys out the pram and then had a hissy fit about that too, just to remind you I am 26, not six.
I then started staring at bodies and thinking and drawing again, and then regularly as part of The 100 Day Project. I rekindled a fire somewhere inside of me.
There's some drawing exercises I come back to again and again, because I like the results and I love the process, and I'm going to share them with you, because why not? It's an art blog, lets talk art (and life drawing apparently).
Drawing with a stick.
Get a (long ish) stick, attach a pen, or pencil or paintbrush to that stick. Draw. Draw for five minutes, draw for half an hour. Just make an image on that paper. Stand back and admire your expressive handiwork.
I haven't posted the video here, as I can't get the formatting right (bugger), there's been no processing because I am lazy and have no video editing software currently; to watch the video, click here.
