I’ve been drawing the human figure for many years and recommend it as a mental exercise for artists. I even did some modelling myself at one stage. My preferred medium is pastel on canson paper.Here’s a few samples.
One of many doodles created with pen on paper during meetings or while on the phone. They aren’t planned nor do I sketch them out in pencil beforehand. The results are straight from the spontaneous part of my subconscious. Some people think I’m not paying attention in the meetings but the opposite is true. These random creations stop my mind from wandering and help me focus on what’s being said.
