Drawing From Memory

Handmade Journal, 5.5" x 8.5"
Pencil Crayon

I'm reading Cathy Johnson's "Sketching and Drawing" book.  One of the good lessons is about drawing from memory, which can be useful for drawing birds, people, and other things that move quickly.  The key here is to use the limited time you have with your subject to really look at it.

On the left is a drawing of a wrench I did from memory - after looking at the wrench for a couple of minutes.  Not easy.  On the right I drew it by looking at it.
