Sketchbook Challenge have an article by Susan R. Sorrell on
Blind Contour Drawing
It is a really good exercise to try out and obviously I had to have a go.
You get SO tempted to look down at the paper, but I did stop myself and kept going. Quite surprised at how it turned out as I was going over the pencil with the pen and it stayed 'more or less' together. I then just added a bit of Burnt Sienna/Yellow Ochre mix, but I did allow myself to look at that!
I'll definitely be trying this technique out again with other subjects
- how about you?
