I’m really enjoying Carla Sonheim’s class, “Y is for Yellow!”
The assignment to draw blind contours in my sketchbook was a little scary at first:
We were to draw 5 images from a magazine with a ballpoint pen without looking at our paper! It was OK if the images overlapped. And I kind of like the “collage affect” from it.
Next, I squinted my eyes to see the darker values of my subject and colored them with a dark blue pencil. I used a light blue pencil to highlight the mid values.
Today, I found the assignment a little more fun!
I included some veggies in the mix! 🙂
I recommend you give this exercise a try! It really does train your eyes to SEE your subject! And if anything, it will give you a good laugh – always good on a Monday!
Happy Drawing! 🙂
