    scribble-envy

    After drooling with envy over my husband's scribbling--the scribbling that he referred to as "learning" (who gets to scribble like a crazy person and learn how to draw at the same time? that can't be right)--I picked up the copy of the Nicolaides text that he checked out from the library and started to work my way through schedule 1. This is the final drawing from schedule 1, column d: a half hour, blind contour drawing of handmade clocks.

    Nicolaides' schedule 2 starting today -- The new information on gestures seemed to help. A sample from schedule 2, first exercise (25 gestures).

    The Natural Way to Draw - Nicolaides
    Schedule 2, column b.

    Blind cross-contour, 1/2 hour.

    I struggled with cross contour until I treated them differently than regular blind contour drawings by selecting a more compact subject and spending more time filling in internal contours--this one was actually enjoyable.

    A discussion within an institution is not fruitful, since the role of creativity diminishes. Discussion without any form of institution is impossible, since everyone stays on his postmodern island. The solution seems [to]...be to dissolve the boundaries between institution and discussion. The discussion itself should be the institution.
