Stay with the same plant that you used in exercise one, turn it around if you like, and and tape a new piece of A3 paper to the table.
resharpen your HB pencil.
Again spend a moment or two looking at the plant and choose a place to start. This time you can move your eye, followed by your pencil slightly faster. The important thing is not to loose sight of the edge you are following. Never make a mark unless it is what your eye sees. Authenticity is crucial. dont “cheat” that is draw something you have not seen, or if you do cheat own up to yourself and ask yourself why?
Trace the edge or line with your eye and this time when you reach the end of the line, because it hits another line or there is nowhere else to go. look down at the paper and place the pencil to start another line. Remember, the rules about reactivity each time you look down.
Continue for around 15 minutes.
Reflect on the three reactions:
how did I feel doing the drawing?
how did i fee before i looked down?
how did i feel when i looked down?
Ask yourself what is more important, the drawing you have made (product) or the drawing and thinking process you went though (process)
