Exercise one, quick drawing
Exercise two, using two hands!
Remember, though I was working from a photograph, I kept telling myself that I mustn't copy. That I wanted to enjoy the experience of having an open mind: Drawing up the subject with two hands! Applying the inks, or whatever medium you choose, in a very free and loose way - suggestion and not description.
The final result. I timed limited myself of no more than 45 minutes, to prevent myself becoming too detailed.
As you can see, I didn't spend more time tweaking the subject, otherwise there's a real danger of adding too much detail, which
defeats the purpose of the exercise. This way of working is taking a journey, continually experimenting, pushing boundaries, exploiting the medium.
