Primitives Blind Object Drawing : Week 7 Drawing Challenge


For this drawing challenge, I picked two objects to work with (A bottle of dish soap and a coffee cup) that I feel have an interesting mix of primitives, and in the case of the cup an interesting interaction between them (square base evolving into circle top).

Though I felt I could draw the cup directly, I really wanted to look at the primitives used in the bottle a bit more, as there are a lot more of them. So before I started the exercise, I started quickly sketching the different parts, to make sure I was doing this properly.

I then drew the objects without looking at them, making sure to focus on the primitives. And beyond the drawings themselves, this was the really interesting bit, like in the first ILA of this course, forcing me to be aware of how shapes are used in the world around us.
