Introduction: Great Artist Warm Up Exercise
This is a method that I kinda stumbled onto. I am a very messy person and always always spill things and so I made this up to utilized the many ruined sketch book pages i have amounted. This is a great way to break though your morning fog and get drawing. It loosens you up and gets your mind thinking creatively you have to do very little to start it. Sometimes the blank page can be your most daunting obstacle. So here we go.
Step 1: Materials
Cup of coffee.
Spoon or stirrer or finger.
Step 2: Sip and Splash
Okay so just open you sketch book to a new page and take your spoon or whathaveyou and dribble
all over the page. I usually add a couple slashing motions in there for good measure. Take a sip of you coffee and let dry a little.
Step 3: Sip and Draw
So this is easy. Just look at your little splashes and streaks and think of what they look like.
Just like looking at clouds the images come to you and before you know it your done with your first cup of coffee and drawing like mad. Enjoi!
