Following one of the daily creative prompts over at Creative Bug, I decided to make a blind contour drawing every day of August in my daily Moleskine.
A blind contour is a drawing done without looking at the page, only the subject, and without removing the pen or pencil from the page.
I don’t think I have made any masterpieces, but I drew quite a lot of self portraits, and about one of them had my facial features inside the outline of my head!!! Abstract, let’s call them abstract!
Front Porch – fan and chair.
Wineglasses from Goodwill, $1.00 each.
Self portrait. Why can’t I connect face and head?!
Orange jug of brushes
Art Jug and found sticker.
Washi tape peeled off mail and a gladioli.
Pile of books from the book sale $8.35 total.
Ruby asleep on the sofa.
Me with sunglasses on my head and my features somewhat inside the outline!!
Chair at the hair salon.
Dried Honesty and stickers.
Polaroid Land Camera.
Blind contours are very fun to draw mainly because they are quick and the pressure is off. They are mainly funny and sometimes you get a pleasant surprise. If you give them a go, be sure to post in the comments or on Instagram and tag me so I can see – @catseatdogsmakes.
Happy Wednesday x
I so love these – they are great and I’m definitely inspired to give it a try.
Oh yay, I hope you enjoy them!
Whoa these are really cool! I would love to see them in a larger format- like on a big canvas or a print. I bet they would look incredible.
Thanks Dawn, I wonder if I drew them to print the pressure to make them ‘good’ would throw me off!! I might grab a big sketchbook and have a go.
