Warm-up Exercises - Circles

Just like you have to warm up your muscles before sports and training, you also need to warm up your visual thinking muscles – your mind and hand. Warm-up exercises are also a great way to trigger creativity. Be sure to make them part of your drawing routine.
Read up on them and get more ideas here.

Check out this simple exercise:

  1. Draw several circles in different sizes over and over again and try to get them as round as possible. It is not about perfection, but about getting comfortable drawing a nice circle quickly and to warm-up your hands and your mind.
    After you have done this, check out this link and try the circles again with this neat trick. But no peaking beforehand! ☺

  2. Take your circles and fill them up with colours or simply make a new image out of them. You can get some inspiration for this here.

  3. Upload your favorite circle or show the course a picture of your whole circle collection in the journal.

If you have more warm-up exercises, share them with the other learners in your journal.

Circles are hard

The shortcut is clever - except, that you won't be able to turn a flipchart or a whiteboard to make a big circle...;-)

I think I'll try doing it over and over without tricks a good 100 times or so. On cheaper paper than y sketch book, though.

My circles tend to become tilted eggs, very flat or with the start and beginning not meeting each other at the, ehmm,.. end.

Bottles are fun. But still a long way to go for me.
