Week 1: Contour & Blind Contour Drawing
Contour drawing is a basic and helpful drawing technique which is perfect for sketchbooks. Because so few materials are required, it's an easy exercise to do just about anywhere!
Sketchbook or sketchpad
1. Choose an object, person, or pet that you would like to draw.
2. Start with a blind contour drawing. The idea with this exercise is not to create a beautiful or perfect-looking piece. Rather, the goal is to really study the contour and lines of your subject.
Take your time and go slowly, following every bump and curve that you see.
