Hannan Exercises

Once again, it's back to drawing from photos to get my hand back under control. Like the Hanon Exercises for piano, the practice might be of dubious benefit, and it might not. The point is to have a little fun while building speed and accuracy.

We shot the photos during the drawing session Thursday, and I spent Friday & Saturday practicing. Today was supposed to be another practice day, but with sunshine & shirt sleeve weather in Nova Scotia - in March, no less! - well, self-indulgence won.

The drawings themselves take about 20 to 30 minutes. Ideally that should get down to 5 or ten. Still a ways to go. But it's a definite improvement from the time it used to take.

this is extremely good for the 20 min. You manage to put quite few details and give them emotions.
