Blind Contour

I almost forgot about the fun of blind contour warm ups. I have been teaching drawing to my new AYAP class this week.  For warm up I had them take their sketchbooks, place  them out of sight but still within reach so that they are able to draw while looking at another participant. Here are 2 pages of blind contours I did while explaining the exercises.


I always like how these turn out. The line work seems so sincere and is one with confidence I rarely find I can maintain when drawing regularly. In this case we were drawing portraits but still life, family pets and crazy people on the bus all make for great subject matter.

I love this drawing tool. Great ideas can arise from these exercises.
