Waihi Life Drawing Class 13/ 5/ 09: Blind contour drawing,Christine

Blind contour drawing is contour drawing without looking at the paper. The eye stays always on the model and as the eye moves along an edge of the subject the hand with the pencil imitates the eye's movement. It is a very useful technique for describing a subtle curve or gesture when used with all the other drawing styles.
Here Christine is exploring the complete drawing of the model with the blind contour method with results that are strangely attractive and suggest the possibility of an intriquing painting.
