Drawing Blind and From Memory
With all expectations of producing a ‘good’ drawing removed, drawing without looking at the paper was fun. I love some of the results, as they a have a certain whimsy that I find appealing.
Especially this little guy, he seems like a sketch for a character from the Be Our Guest scene in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast!
I was amazed that, after all the times I drew that damn measuring cup, after studying it closely for a minute immediately before, that when it came time, I couldn’t remember how the handle attachment actually looked!
I was truly surprised by this, and thought it a good lesson on observation, though drawing blind was definitely the method I preferred.
