I suggest a game, draw with your eyes. It’s easy and fun and always goes well! I like to do this, especially with animals.
1. Choose an animal, or thing (which/ that does not move )
2. Stop thinking, but observe! You will be surprised at what you discover. Forget what you know, look!
3. Try to observe the volumes, for example, the head of the cow is a pyramid, the body of the sheep is a ball, a cylinder.
4. Start with your eyes to draw the animal or object. It has to happen very quickly, within seconds. I assure you that it will be perfect. Animals drawing longer time is almost impossible, because it moves.
It is very interesting and you learn a lot, how the shapes are constructed. It is like a little child who discovers everything. It’s fun!
