Drawing Lab

So I got this book for my son for Christmas called the "Drawing Lab" by Carla Sonheim....and I have used it more than he has.  In fact he hasn't used it at all because I have it all the time:)  It's a really fun book and helps you to connect the eyes to the hand by emphasizing spontaneous drawing and not focused drawing.  Since all the work I have been doing at the Academy has been to hone my skills at observation and accurate drawing I thought it would be fun to be spontaneous!  Here are a few examples of the first lab which is drawing cats from the imagination while on a bed (soft surface creates more gestural lines).
