Complete these 2 exercises: 1. BLIND CONTOUR: Choose an object and make a blind contour drawing, in which you move your pencil slowly and do not lift it or look at your paper.
2. NEGATIVE DRAWING: Look around and find an object that would work well for a negative drawing (like we did with the stool.) A dining room chair or a bike work well...something with openings that you can see through. Focus on drawing the negative shapes instead of the actual edges of the object.
