Drawing with glasses and without: which is which?
So far so good...8 days into the New Year and my resolution is holding up. Each day I've spent 15 minutes drawing. Losing my glasses one day resulted in an interesting drawing experiment. Instead of wasting another 15 minutes looking for them I decided to do my drawing without glasses. The drawing of the rose above is the result. (The drawing of the bear is an example of drawing with my glasses.) Not being able to see details forced me to sort of "feel my way around" the drawing process, producing more fluid, intuitive lines and punching up values.
