Drawing exercises, looking but not looking exercise

Drawing based on observation is a good thing to do (!) when you’re learning to draw. For me there’s a tension or a balance between likeness and what works for your own sense of visual interest. What do you think?

Sometimes I like a bit of accuracy because there’s just so much to discover and learn by really looking at something. But it seems at some point, the minds eye wants to move into a tangent and take the hand and paint brush with it.


Would love to hear from you!
