We were drawing hands today (the Extended Diploma year one). They started off with a warm up activity exploring three drawings- 'blind contour drawing', 'Linear', and 'tonal drawing'. Then they animated their hand by drawing a succession of hands across the surface of the paper showing the hand moving around. So I decided to have a go at a couple of the techniques just to check I could do this. The hand on the right is just 'sketchy' and neither 'tonal' or 'linear'. Here I have failed. I actually prefer the hand on the left- much better.
