Sigo en la misma línea. Estoy tratando de mejorar la percepción de la mirada y conseguir dibujar en mi pequeño cuaderno objetos más grandes con el fin de aprender las proporciones.

In the right path. I am trying to enhance my vision , my perception. I want to achieve draw big objects on my small notebook. My goal is learn how to draw well the proportions.

Building 1

Quiero dibujar en el exterior, en parques,calles, paseos o plazas. Me siento bien cuando dibujo edificios en mi ciudad. De momento he dibujado mal porque no domino las proporciones. He dibujado este de internet  para aprender como representar edificios en un pequeño papel. Es muy difícil trasladar un edificio tan grande a un pequeño papel. Con este dibujo y el anterior estoy tratando de entrenarme. Lo más difícil es realizar los pequeños detalles, aunque estos son los que dan realismo a nuestros dibujos.

I want to draw outside in the street, parks, squares or promenades. I feel good when I try to draw a important building of my home town. I had drawn badly because I didn't master the proportions. This drawings is a copy of an internet image to learn my hand to drive in a paper. I thought that it is very difficult draw building because it is a huge size to repeat in a piece of paper. I am training my hand with images on Internet and big object like star war character. The most difficult is to make smallest details. However they give realism to our drawings.

A new challenge

Another one

It is an experiment. Experimentando

Estos dibujos no han sido mas que un experimento para ver como dibujo.
El primero he dibujado de manera natural, sin tener en cuenta nada, únicamente repetía las lineas que veía en el objeto que dibujaba. Por supuesto no había planificación;no he tenido encuenta ningun aspecto, ni perspectiva, ni relacion entre las partes de objeto, ni los puntos claves, etc.
Los siguiente he tratado de considerar o tener en cuenta proporciones, distancias entre los puntos de los objetos etc.
En el último he realizado un cuadrado y he intentado meter el dibujo dentro de  él teniendo en cuenta todo el objeto integramente. Me he fijado en el espacio en negativo, porque tambien ocupa su lugar en el dibujo.

I took my notebook and my pencil and tryed to improve my vision about proportions.
First drawing shows how I draw without thinking; I made lines,  this was my method.  I saw the object and drew in my note book. I did't take other aspects into account. It 's very difficult to draw well without mastering aspects such as proportion, perspective, relationship among different elements in your drawing.
The next drawings I tried to consider aspect such as relationships among distances of all parts.It was  difficult because I didn't have a global vision of the object. It is a tridimensional object and if I want to place in a sheet I have to take into account a lot of aspects.
The last drawing  I wanted to draw in a square. It was very useful. I tried to place every point of my armchair in this square. It was important to see whole object. If you forget negative spaces you will not draw well. Our mind try to confuse our understanding, because it looks for important views for another goal. Drawing  depends on changing our mind. In this case we must see in other way. I have to think only in our drawing object how a holistic object.

Five minutes

I going to start a new way of drawing; it will call "five minutes". It consists in drawing during five minutes. I know it will produce  simple sketches. However, it will be a useful way to learn.
My first attempt was in the morning. I went to pay a son´s scholar trip taxes. I spend a while, five minutes, drawing. Espolón Square.

To be continued.

I had to stop to draw because it was time to tidy up purchases.

This is no way

I repeat lines, so it is my mistake. I see lines and try to draw them without sense. It could be an interesting drawing because it looks like an image which you can find on internet. However, it is a boring drawing, empty of grace. It shows to me what is my wrong path. I have to change my way to see what I draw. I think it is very important if I understand what I am drawing. What do I have to understand? What is the relationship among different parts, what is the perspective, etc. The goal is to get a new view through my mind. I sometimes have noticed a new experience when I am drawing. I feel how I see my lines as a real object. I draw a line and it is similar like I am watching on real object. However this situation happens only during a few seconds. I am sure, it is likely these moments go on longer than now. The solution is to practise every day.

Improving proportions.

It is time to practise. Sometimes I think is very difficult to draw with right proportions but the unique way to learn is drawing. I have tried to draw a small place of my living room and this is my attempt.
