1: Breaking mental boundaries
exercise breaks the following theory:
human brain is divided into two hemispheres. These hemispheres have
different capacities and aptitudes. The left hemisphere is the part
that takes care of anything logic: structures, order, analysis. The
right hemisphere is the part that looks after intuition, and which
perceives what is irrational. To draw, we need to free the control
that the left hemisphere exerts on us and become free and intuitive.
There are exercises that oblige
you to stop perceiving an image as a "figure"or "scenery", etc and
make un sinply conceive a group of lines, axles and different tones.
The best way to forget what
a drawing represents and imagine it as a series of lines is to reverse
it. When you copy it in this position, you will be surprised ti
dee a much better result than if you would have left the drawing
in its correct position.
I have chosen a Picasso drawing
for this exercise. However, you can use any drawing as long as it
has clear lines...
