Remembering what I saw without looking was easy at first and then as my list grew, it became more challenging. I felt my recollection was broad and not very specific. I think as the list went on, the more detailed my memory became. This was interesting for me to see what I actually could remember and then looking around after this activity highlighted the many details that didn't stick with me.
I know this is strange. This is my contour drawing of a handle. It does look kind of wrong, but that is not what this activity is meant for. I like the feeling of being free without trying to make something as I think it should look. I found that by not looking at my paper, I felt a playfulness with art. I wasn't worried about anything and found it fun and somewhat funny to play around with not looking while drawing, well at the paper anyways.
This is my drawing of a tub that I was in over the weekend. I went to one of my favorite getaways... Hot spring, MT. It was a lovely place to go over this snowy weekend. I was in this large clawfoot tub with natural mineral water surrounding me. It was easy for me to study the faucet for 20 minutes and then draw it while in the warm water. I really enjoyed this activity and have never drawn in a bath before.
