Big Draw 11 and 12

Again, exercises from 'Drawing on the Right Side of your Brain'. The first is modified contour drawing, trying not to take the pencil off the paper. The second,you check angles in relation to vertical or horizontal. As your eyes move slowly along the contour on the paper at the same speed. Move from contour to adjacent contour. Do not draw a complete outline and then try to draw the interior forms.

I really like both drawings but especially the whisk - it looks like it would be easy, but we all know how hard that it.

You are doing great with these exercises!

In answer to your question, water-filled brushes are like a pen with a brush but full of water that can be refilled and used to paint with watercolor. That way a pan of water is not necessary.
