You’ll See Alot More of My Hands


Contour drawing of my hand

I’ve been practicing contour drawing a lot lately. I usually start my sessions by doing a few contour drawings of my hands. I try to draw as much ‘blind’ as possible, keeping my eyes on the subject while i draw the lines. I’d say 80% time spent looking at the subject and the rest on the paper. I guess you could call it modified blind contour. After I started focusing this way while drawing my results turned remarkably better. I call it drawing on instinct, I’ll get back to that in another post.

Also, enjoy this (red) bell pepper.
