Fun Game To Open Your Mind

Fun Game To Open Your Mind - student project

This game was really challenging in such a great way where you had to deeper and deeper (or be more creative) into your subject or into one's mind, but it was done so playfully that you didn't get stuck thinking too much about it.  So great! I think I can do better next time, haha.  I got really frustrated on some of the time allowed, but by the very end of course I appreciated why that was part of the whole exercise.  By the time it was all over, I was so inspired and was ready to tell everyone I know to play this game, but it was like 2 in the morning so I will during daytime hours.  And yes, I made 11 drawings because I messed up in the beginning, but I posted them all anyway.  

I learned a ton, but main points are: how close minded and uptight I am, I like my pencil and painted sketches, my go to paintbrush was the #8 size, I love having all my art supplies within reach and ready to use (as I usually restrict myself to specific mediums whenever I begin a new sketch or painting - mind opening), my abstract drawings are creepy, and I need to do this for every time I begin a new painting, a new perspective on a painting!
