Methods of drawing

Drawing is a big part of my studio practice. It is something I practice daily, so more often than even painting. It is an essential communication tool when it comes to expressing my thoughts. And what I love the most about drawing is the endless possibilities in technique.

My favorite methods of drawing are as follows:

  • blind drawing
  • non dominant hand drawing
  • upside down drawing
  • automatic drawing
  • drawing with both hands at the same time
  • observational drawing
  • superimposed drawing
  • continuous line drawing

Some of these methods can be demonstrated through the drawings of artist that I find myself drawn to (excuse the pun). Such as Shantell Martin, Carl Krull, Boris Schmitz, David Delruelle and Phillip Dvorak. Highly recommend their work as inspiration for anyone interested in expanding their knowledge of drawing!
