I’ve tried ‘extreme sketching’ a couple of times before, drawing while walking along (see bottom of post), during a paintball session, in the rain, and while on a merry-go-round. I enjoyed the challenge and the resulting shaky lines, so last week I had a go at sketching the view from a dentist’s chair during a routine check-up… I managed to do the pencil line drawing while they were delving into my mouth, holding the sketchbook out beyond their hands and instruments. I added some shade and white when I got home. The dentists were slightly bemused by my request, but interested in the result, seeing a patient’s-eye view of their masked faces peering down at them! Further below is the object of the dentist’s fascination, drawn while grimacing into a mirror. Any suggestions for a new challenge?
