For this exercise I had to recreate a scene I would have drawn in my childhood. This exercise was meant for me to reflect on old symbols I used. I think I simplified my shapes more than I would have when I was younger. I had fun drawing this.
My next exercise is to do a "pure contour drawing." I have to look at my hand and drag my pencil across the paper to record my perceptions. I am not allowed to look at the paper as I draw for 5 minutes. The exercise is meant to keep me in thinking on the right side of my brain.
