We’re going to calm the constant chatter of our minds and practice seeing with simplicity.
Just like when we unconsciously catch a ball that’s thrown to us, contour drawing is a hand eye
exercise that can produce sketches or very finished pieces. Contour drawing is an outline
drawing, where our main concentration is to interrupt the urge to constantly look down at what
we’re drawing. We’re focusing up and out at the still life in front of us and only looking at our
drawing 10% of the time.
This is a way of seeing differently, it hinders our internal critical voice and allows our hand eye
connection a chance to develop. It’s also fun!
On tinted paper we’ll use three shades of a chalk called conté, one to draw our outline the other
two for light and shadow to create the form
Masks are required.
