Exercise 1.1 Drawing Objects

I arranged a small notebook resting on a Bluetooth speaker.

Continuous line (Fig. 1). I learnt that drawing a straight freehand line is difficult

Fig. 1

From memory – drawing with eyes closed (Fig. 2). The result is unsurprisingly not similar to original objects. I bravely attempted to draw a pattern of holes on top of the speaker.

Blind drawing – looking at objects not at paper (Fig. 3)

Fig. 3

Negative spaces. Fig. 4 was my first attempt. Then I thought that perhaps I shouldn’t have drawn outlines of my objects, so I completed Fig. 5, Fig. 6 and Fig. 7 (in that order)

Tonal (Fig. 8) – by far this one is my favourite. It best shows the shape and relationship between the objects.
