Warm up by drawing
This activity describes a series of quick experimental drawing exercises that can be done alone or in combination.
Exercises like these are often done by artists to warm up as they begin their work. By following various fast methods of drawing, outside of traditional sketching techniques, artists can free themselves up from labouring over detail, instead picking out essential shape, line and emotions. The aim is not for 'perfect' finished drawings, but alternative representations of an object or person.
Below are just a few examples of artists' drawings. Many more drawings can be found on Art UK.
