We always start our drawing groups with 15 minutes of speed drawing where we have 30 seconds to draw the model in each of a series of poses. This exercise serves to warm us up and also to kick in the right side of the brain … the creative and visual side.
Speed drawing is a valuable exercise as it teaches us to judge proportion accurately and to instantly pick out leading lines and the important elements of a subject. Commuting on public transport is a perfect opportunity to brush up on our skills. Go to the EXERCISES page for more commuters.
