I had so much fun last night! We all sat on the floor and worked from the same objects. The first drawing was the “Taking a line for a walk” exercise. Callie enjoyed this so much that she thinks we should start each class using it as a warm up exercise.
For our second exercise we sketched a series of superimposed drawings from a still life object using the “look/draw” technique. We tweaked the exercise a bit by using a different color for each drawing. Elizabeth donated the “hand of weird proportions” that we used as our model.
I really enjoyed the more informal setup – sitting on the floor, using the same models, and definitely the highly entertaining discussion and fine wine! I don’t know if this would work in a larger group, but I think we should try it again next week.
I will also try and remember to bring my camera so I can take more action photos!
