TWO WEEK PROJECT:
First week practice drawing the hand in Blind Contour:
Contour line: what is it?
Blind Contour drawings? What does blind contour mean?
Rules of Blind Contour:
Do not look at your paper
Start at the top of the object
Follow the object with your eyes and move your hand as your eye moves
Do not pick up your pencil for the duration of the drawing time
If you finish go over the shape again until time runs out
Practice Using charcoal sticks draw your hand with blind contour
Step 1: place your non drawing hand on the table in a fun position using a portion of it to hold your paper down
Step 2: start at the top portion of the hand and begin to move your eye around your hand
Step 3: using charcoal let your drawing hand move along the paper without looking at the results until the end
