Blind Contour Drawing

This time is a little different. We’re going to make it so we can’t see what we’re drawing. This may mean drawing slightly turned away from your page or creating a little shield for your hand to avoid temptation. Then we’re going to set a timer, and draw just the contours, taking our time, relaxing and moving very slowly. We’re going to be paying huge amounts on attention to the minute details of our hand, really learning to see them. 


Instruction: place hand in comfortable but intesting pose, draw the contours (lines, shape) of your hand without looking at your page. Do this at least twice, changing your hand pose in between each one.

Materials: 2B/4B Pencil

Timer: 5 mins x 2 times
