contour drawing

Contour drawing is done by following the outline of the subject, ideally without looking at the paper, only at the subject being drawn. Its a good exercise in really seeing what you are drawing and not just drawing what your brain believes a flower (or face or whatever) looks like. To really push the old right brain to its limits I did this with my left (non-dominant) hand.

  1. Cool! I so want to try drawing without looking with my right hand. I'm going to bead today. I'm crazy about beads. Why is that?
