The most difficult part of the Drawabox program is the 50% rule.
Students are supposed to divide the time they spend drawing in two:
- one half is dedicated to the exercises
- the other is reserved to drawing for the sake of drawing.
Like many others, I have issues with the latter. Sometimes it’s difficult to come up with a subject, others to render it as I wished. It is, though, a crucial part of a process that takes time. Sometimes doodling helps me to avoid overthinking it. I drew this leaves-like composition on my tablet in my spare time recently and noticed how my mark is getting better lately.
