The Rule of Three

I got this idea from ‘Look, Cover, Write, Check’ which is a way of learning spellings that i used to do at school. I wanted to apply the technique here by looking at an image and drawing from it. I would do this three times from each image with a timed gap between each one. The aim was to help me understand the construction of a bum and isolate what i wanted to focus on.

From the drawing process, i found that on the third drawing i was focusing mainly on the outer edge of the figure and less on the shadows and shading. I also became more confident with the lines i was making because the shapes became familiar to me.


Overall, i really like this method because it makes sure that i draw what i see confidently which i can then take into other areas of y practice. I can also recognise the varieties of shapes that are out there.
