If you liked contour drawing you are going to LOVE blind contour drawing! There is really only one small (but significant) difference between the two. When you are doing a blind contour drawing you can’t look at your drawing until you are completely finished. It’s important that you follow this rule, if you don’t you’re just doing a regular contour drawing.
You’ll see when you watch the video that this method is quite a bit more challenging however, it will also do wonders for your hand-eye coordination which is oh-so important for you artists. Make sure to check out the contour drawing lesson so you can be in on what we’re talking about!
My number one tip for getting the most out of this exercise is to take your time, if you rush you’ll miss all those delicious details in the object that you’re drawing.
TODAY’S LESSON: Blind contour is when you draw the contour (outline) of an object as well as relevant details on the inside of that object using a continuous line and not looking at your drawing until it’s done.
YOUR HOMEWORK: Do 10 blind contour drawings.
Have fun everybody!!
