What Is Blind Contour?The Blind Contour video will show you the basic approach needed to complete Exercise #1. Though a small potted plant is used as the subject matter, you have the option of drawing one of your hands instead. Drawing one’s hand is a relatively common subject for the assignment. A true blind contour drawing means you do not look at the paper or you do not lift your pencil up once you start. It should be a continuous line that follows the exterior outlines of the object’s shape. Lastly, the final rendering of the object may look distorted and out of scale/proportion. It is not meant to look realistic. You are working on improving your eye-hand coordination by seeing and feeling all the nuances of how outlines describe shapes.Cheap Joe’s 2 Minute Art Tip – Blind Contour Drawing (March 27, 2018):Cheap Joe’s 2 Minute Art Tip – Blind Contour Drawing (Links to an external site.)Minimize VideoMaterials/Supplies18” x 24” Newsprint Pad/Drawing Board2B Drawing PencilEraser (white plastic or kneaded)Pencil SharpenerInstructionsRemove one sheet of paper from your newsprint pad.Be careful not to tear the paper unevenly as you remove it from the pad.The sheets are attached to the pads with an adhesive binding that can make it difficult to pull the sheets off cleanly. I suggest pulling the sheet slowly and carefully from the adhesive binding.Attach one sheet to your drawing board for the first exercise and follow the instructions below to create a sheet of Blind Contour drawing.Create two Blind Contour drawings of either one of your hands in different positions or a potted plant on one sheet of paper.Draw at least two different views of the object(s) you chooseTry to render them life-size, whether it’s a small plant or your hand.Both drawings should be on one side of the newsprint paper (do not use the back.)It is ok if parts of the two drawings overlap.Draw for 1-2 minutes without lifting the pencil or looking at the paperSubmission InstructionsTake a photo of the drawing with an 18-inch rulerThe ruler should be next to the outside of any side of your painting with the numbers visible.
