The January Challenge 2019

The January Challenge, Day 7 – Double Take

When we look at things, how closely do we actually look? Today is about opening our eyes to what’s around us by…closing them!

Draw an object with your eyes closed. Repeat with your eyes open. What new things did you discover? Was there something blindingly obvious that you missed? Or are your drawings pretty much identical? 

If you have more time: 

Could you repeat the challenge with a photograph, or memory in mind? How much do you remember, and can you capture those feelings in your sketch?


Do you think you might start looking closer at things? Which details do you think really matter?

Jemima drew a red pepper for this challenge….and found that peppers are tricky to draw with or without your eyes closed!
