If you’re ever looking to stretch your observational skills, we would like to recommend drawing upside down! Set up any object, like Marketing Assistant Nakaia has with this pencil cup, and flip it upside down in your mind to draw it.

This exercise tests your observational skills and helps you see objects as they are instead of how you think they should look.

What do you do when you need to stretch your sketching skills?
