For those of us who are more task-oriented than inspired, here are some drawing assignments. Also check out the Everyday Matters list of weekly challenges.
- Make a blind contour drawing (preferably on the first Friday of the month, i.e., this Friday, November 3; e-mail InkFinger before then to participate in the official Blind Contour Friday festivities).
- Draw using a viewing square or use a preexisting frame to isolate a scene.
- While listening to a favorite album/CD/playlist, make a drawing for each song.
- Do an upside-down portrait of a housemate or other invertible person.
- Turn the Dallas Cowboys into cowgirls.
- Draw a piece of fruit. No, really. That’s what fruit is for.
- Draw a picture of yourself making a really scowly, angry face (or whatever’s an atypical expression for you; i.e., if you usually look scowly and angry, try smiling for a few minutes). (If you draw yourself looking normal, you’re more likely to draw what you think you look like than what you actually look like. Also, you may get discouraged if your portrait is not accurate. But if you’re trying to look weird, anything goes.)
- Draw a picture outside.
- Draw a picture before getting out of bed in the morning.
- Draw a picture in the dark.
- Draw a picture while standing up.
- Draw without using black.
- Draw something for each letter of the alphabet.
- Draw with your nondominant hand.
