Have you ever done a contour drawing before? what about a blind contour drawing?
I LOVE doing contour drawings and blind contour drawings even more. Just from the freedom to say “who cares” what it looks like, it’s about the finely tuned relationship between your eyes and your hands… which is the big old brain.
Although blind contour drawings are usually done pen/pencil on paper, I’m kicking this up a bit by throwing in some mixed media. Why?
Well, you know all those backgrounds you created in the Book of Background series I have? cut ’em up and use ’em up!
Rules: fire the inner critic, ’cause your drawing is going to look wobbly, just as if you were drawing this while sitting naked in the snow.
