Sketchbook #12: Ten Minute Challenge

February 28, 2011

I gave the Ten Minute Challenge a try and made those drawings of a vase. Every single drawing was made with soft pastels on pastel paper within 7-10 minutes. They all have a size of 10 x 10 cm.

Funny to see what I can draw in such a short time. They are far from perfect, but it’s a good exercise to learn to see the most important parts of what you want to draw and to reduce everything. It’s a bit like drawing thumbnails of an idea as part of the planning of a new painting. I like it and will do it more often with different objects.

  1. I think of myself as being able to play with words on a base level but I have absolutely no talents in drawing or painting. It’ s really astonishing to see how you can change a blank sheet of paper into a great picture!

    • Funny, because I usually have similar thoughts if I read something good, e.g. your short stories. I find it easier to paint with colors, while you often draw pictures with your words. 😀
