Quick Quick

10 second sketches of an owl. This is from some photos we took in the local wildlife park, but I timed myself since being able to sketch quickly from life can be really  important when your subject moves around a lot. At least they sort of look like owls lol

Super quick sketches - you are right, being quick and being able to hold a memory for a minute or two is very useful for drawing moving subjects. I think you've succeeded!

I agree. Great job and a very good exercise.

Love them.

'Quick on the Draw' obviously! Well done, don't think I could do a recognisable owl in 10 seconds, I'm too obsessed with detail ... :-(

thanks Rolina :) now if only the dog would stop moving for a minute so I could draw her. Only really manage it when she is sleeping :p

thanks Norma :) yep, 10 seconds, probably should have given myself 20 tho

I use to be obsessed with detail as well, but I think having to get projects done in a short amount of time for uni/college has made me ignore most of it and focus on the shapes as much as possible

Quick gestures are a great exercise. These are great!
