My drawing and painting life
Ha! I love this wonky zebra. The wonky shape is a result from the kind of drawing we did: blind contour. ‘Blind’ in this case means: not looking at the page, only the reference. The assignment was to draw two blind contours on top of each other and work from there. It took me three times before anything even loosely resembling a zebra appeared. By the third try I was finally relaxed enough to really let eye and hand work together. 🙂
The fun element in this assignment is that you just have to go with what happens, try and relax into it and see what comes out. Great assignment to let go of perfectionism, allowing the imperfect and trying to see the charm in that.
This is me catching up on some work from last year, in this case from the online class, Y is for Yellow (working through the alphabet actually, not just drawing and painting in yellow). The last lesson, Z lesson, asked for a drawing of a zebra, perhaps even a zippered zebra. I never got to the zipper part.
I’ll post some more pieces from the end of 2016 from time to time.
