EXERCISE #1: BLIND CONTOUR DRAWINGS (DAY 1) –
Pick a point along a contour to begin your drawing, if you want you can keep a blank piece of paper over your hand and your drawing surface to maintain the blind approach. You are expected not to look at your drawing while in process. Imagine that an insect is slowly crawling along the edges and contours of your subject matter. This mimics how you want your eyes to travel along edges slowly and carefully while recording the movements of your eyes with whatever drawing tool you will be using.
What to do:
1. Make 3 series of of blind contour drawings:
Drawing# 1 – for the first series choose a simple object like a fruit or a vegetable (you can draw more than one);
Drawing #2 – the second one is a shoe, or a sneaker, or a boot (look around for an interesting representative from your collection);
Drawing #3 – the third one, a human face or a head, you can do a self-portrait done in front of the mirror or you can ask a friend or a relative to pose for you. (Do not use a photograph or image on the computer screen for this!)
2. Work with graphite or charcoal pencil. (use the soft one)
3. Use one page per drawing from your sketchbook.
At the end you will end up with 3 or more pages. If you feel that it didn’t work well, repeat the exercise. Use the full page for the shoe and the portrait, you can draw fruits/vegetables to a scale and draw more than one object on the page.
You can easily spend over an hour on your drawing if your subject matter provides you with enough information. A completed blind contour drawing will be beautifully distorted and expressive if done well. It is a record of your attention and focus.
The goal of blind drawing is to really see the thing youre looking at, to almost spiritually merge with it, rather than retreat into your mental image of it. – Sam Anderson, May 17, 2015, edition of the New York Times Magazine on Blind Contour Drawing.
Be prepared to spend 1-2 h for this exercise.
EXERCISE #2: CONTINUOUS CONTOUR LINE DRAWINGS (DAY 2) – 20 POINTS
The next three drawings will be based on the concept of continuous line contour drawing – a contour drawing done without lifting your pencil off of the paper. It is essentially done with one long line. It will be tempting to lift the pen, don’t! You can pause and take a break. Don’t worry about how accurate your drawing looks, go slow, explore. (It’s not about proportion or a good-looking image.)
What to do:
1. Make 3 drawings using ink pen on Mixed Media paper
2. Drawing #4 – you can use the same subjects that you used for the previous exercise. But I strongly recommend to look for something that has more edges. (Drawing an egg would be too simple and boring.)
3. Drawing #5 – your hand holding an object (scissors, pen, glasses, pencil… be creative)
4. Drawing #6 – self-portrait.
Expect to spend 2-3 h working on this exercise.
EXERCISE #3: CROSS CONTOUR LINE DRAWINGS (DAY 3) – 30 POINTS
These are the last two drawings for this module. Each one will take at least an hour or even longer to finish.
What to do:
1. Make 2 drawings, one using graphite pencils and one using ink pen (but if you want you can use pencil to make a preliminary drawing. )
2. Drawing #7 – set up a simple still life that will have a draped cloth, a fruit or vegetable and a cup/glass/bowl. They can overlap or not.
(Don’t worry about proportions we are going to learn how deal with that in the next Module). Use a pencil and make a contour line drawing of all your objects. In the next step – start drawing cross contour lines to create volume for each object. (Use different kinds of pencils, to create line variations.) Use drawing paper. Keep your composition in the middle of the page, use 80% of the page.
3. Drawing #8 – let’s have fun. Use mixed media paper make a cross contour drawing of your room. (Horizontal format would be the best.) Fill in the whole page from edge to edge. Use ink pen. If you feel it’s too difficult and you don’t trust yourself, start with a light pencil sketch to mark all the objects in the room.
Now you are done with all your 8 drawings. It was a lot of work and I hope you learned a lot. Take good photos of each drawing, combine them in one (1) pdf file, add a short 200 words self-reflection paragraph and submit the assignment.
(Also, in addition to images of all 8 drawings, don’t forget to add an image of 1 (one) page from your Doodle Journal. It’s just a friendly reminder. I know you’ve beed doodling daily.)
