This is a nice exercise, especially at the beginning of a course. You get your students to draw a picture of; a house, a person, a tree, a bush, flowers and then 5 more elements of their choosing.
I give them only one pen to make the drawing which forces them more to think of the drawing and contents, i also try to make them sit separately and copying is forbidden!!!
The idea is to show them that even if the drawings are all of the same subject, they can produce very different and individual works…
I really love the gothic nature of this one by Markmalli…a very individual thinker.
