It was my son’s turn last week to choose the themes for these daily drawings and he came up with quite a challenge! The first four prompts were way out of my comfort zone… take a look.
(My drawings are on the left, Nout’s on the right – click to enlarge)
Draw (very schematically) complete figures on a sheet. Try to draw at least 10 different people/figures: someone walking with a bag, or sitting on a bench, it could be anything. Draw each figure with a pen in just a few lines. Think dolls or cartoon-like; those architectural sketches or fashion designs as a source of inspiration.
Now do the same for trees and greenery: sketch different trees and vegetation in schematic / cartoon style. Perhaps a park, a bush? Everything is possible.
Draw an outside or inside situation with buildings around it: a square, a shopping street, a large terrace.
Merge the earlier drawings: you can cut and paste, or redraw. Insert the people (day 1) and the vegetation (day 2) in the situation (day 3). This creates a scene/situation sketch!
Draw a bird
Draw a fictional map
I only started sketching my fictional map and Nout isn’t finished with it either… coming up with, and drawing, a fictional map takes a LOT of time!
I know that ’cause I made one in 2011. Enjoy this oldie…
…and I promise I will publish Nout’s fictional map as an extra when he’s finished it.
Draw a landscape
