[nkqteeac] Draw what you see

Take a picture of a static scene.  Then, draw the same scene and digitize the drawing (perhaps drawing directly on an electronic device).  A computer program does camera calibration and image alignment to try to line up the photograph and drawing as closely as possible.  The artist sees the errors where his/her drawing does not line up with the photograph.

The goal is to learn the skill of accurately drawing, a skill which might still be useful in this age of the ubiquitous camera because of situations in which a camera might not be permitted or impractical.  This kind of practice may also help improve the ability to draw from memory.  It may help develop "an eye for detail".

Maybe a competition.
