Another intriguing change of style. I love how you did the hair in negative space. Good work overall!
Very nice continuous line drawing. It is one of my most favorite styles of drawing the figure. Years ago, there were a couple of class times where the instructor had us tape a large piece of newsprint over the paper we were to draw on. Just tape at the top so that we could lift it up just enough to get our hand underneath to draw. That meant we couldn't look at what we were drawing till we were done.
thanks to both of you.Indeed change of style, as the model "hits me" without warning, and makes me react to her performance through my drawings.Painterwoman, thanks a lot for sharing the your instructor's tips. I might re-use this for my classes 🙂

Believe me, it will freak the students out at first. They will say "What?", "Are you kidding?", "How can we draw and not see?". They will be surprised because the results are fun, funny, interesting, bizarre and, sometimes, strangely real looking. I just remembered another exercise: drawing with the opposite hand you are used to drawing with.
Drawing with the opposite hand sounds like a fun experiment, especially as I have almost equal dexterity in both.
Indeed students are scared when pushed to experiment. But I suppose they also trust us teacher to "push them forward", instead of re-assuring them to "stay safe".Drawing with the opposite hand is also a classic exercise. I remember also writing a diary from right to left, with my opposite hand. Only me could decipher the hand-writing, using a mirror.
