I'm starting to keep a daily sketch book and carrying it around with me. Today I did some contour drawings.
I don't imagine that anyone will be impressed with these - but they are great exercises. Each took anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes to draw. I used a pigment liner - so. . . NO ERASING! All of my models were moving (especially Lady!). I think these sorts of things are really helping to a) build my confidence in the line I put down and b) train my eyes and hands to work together. I quite enjoy them and plan to do many more.
