Blind Contour Drawings

ONE LINE - NO PEEKING!

Blind contour drawing is an exercise in which the artist draws the subject without looking at the paper or taking their pen off the page.

Because I only take a minute or two for each drawing, I can draw many people in a festival day. 

Here are Lab Cab Festival attendees holding up blind contour portraits.

Blind contour drawings are not usually accurate depictions but they do sometimes capture something of the essence of the person.

Here is Empress Cherry Sunday with one of my favourite blind contours, drawn during a children’s festival.

My sketchbooks are filled with blind contour drawings. Sometimes I develop them with colour and shading.
