Hi ert/ Mette:)
Thanks for the suggestion to make a list, which makes a lot of sense!
Hopefully it will make more sense when Members read it as well?
So I'll try and rewrite it that way?
But I'm glad that you and X have taken the time to try it.
Though the important question is, what was happening when you were doing the drawing?
After looking at the Match-Box /Book and then closing your eyes.
Did you manage to capture a vague image of the match-box in your mind?
Could you still sort of see it?
Could you then look across it, from side to side?
So that you looked at each side as you were drawing it?
This is the real aim, to practise capturing an image in your mind, and then working with this mental image?
So maybe you could let me know what the image in your mind is like?
It is also better to place the match-box on an angle, because then you have to capture a picture of the angled position.
If it's not on an angle, then you can simply draw a line straight up, across right, back down, then across left. Which can be done from verbal directions.
But if it is on an angle, then you cant do it verbally?
You have to actually picture the angle that it is sitting at.
So maybe you try this, and let me know how you go?
Though Xthe, a match-box is much better than a match-book, as a match-book doesnt really have sides. So it's more 2D rather than 3D.
Anyway, have fun drawing :)
