The first lesson I chose is called "What do you see". The idea is to fill a paper with scribbles and then use the empty/negative space to create images. They actually created a scribbled sheet for you but obviously, you can (and I think, you should) make one of your own.
The first thing I saw on that paper was a balloon. And then another one. After a while all I could see were balloons made of loops. So I decided to fill them with some color first. I took a time frame of 15 minutes and started working.
After eliminating all the possible loops I took another paper and began the exercise itself.
To make it easier I first decided to outline the form I would be working on. This is the result.
And then I took another 15 minutes and made my own scribbles page.
I had so much fun doing that!!! I really enjoyed this exercise. It is really challenging and good in so many aspects:
- It took me away from the co-called perfect sketching I'm used to.
- It makes me work with irregular form and be creative as to squeeze the imaginary item into the given form.
- It challenges me to see something that might or might now be there.
It was so cool, I loved it!
