the Purpose of Practice

Posted Apr 2018

I don't need to give myself extra Jobs when I'm practicing Drawing in my Off-time. There are other purposes to my Drawing Exercises.

In this case, I set about to do a Memory Drawing. I didn't feel like drawing, but I did it anyway ~ as an exercise. Instead of trying to develop that Best Drawing, today's exercise was to develop the ability to draw well no matter what I'm feeling.

I looked at one of the Photos that I had not yet posted here. I did Not look at the Caricature of this young man that I drew at the Event. I just looked at the Photo of him for 5 minutes. Then I put away the Photo and drew a Party-Style Caricature from Memory. To exercise how to Focus.

Playtime

Posted Mar 2018

I had Company at the house today. I Enjoyed sharing my Drawing Time with my Friend. But it felt more like the way I already Know what I'm doing when I'm at a Party than it felt like my Self-Development Drawing Time ~ which is what I set out to do each day.

We just did the No-predraw, No-fuss Drawings that I did here a couple of days ago. Now I wish I let my Friend lead instead ~ so I could experienced something that wasn't already in my own head.

Breaking Free !

Posted Mar 2018

Tonight, I took some time off for my own Personal Drawing Time. I used a Photo from my previous post as a Reference ~ http://caricatureexpress.com/connecting

I drew freely. No predraw. No preplan. It felt aaaaahhh good.

I feel like I am breaking out of the Self-Imposed Prison that I create every once in a while with the intention of improving my Artwork. This is the real thing.
