Blind Contour Drawing
with Barbara Lloyd

Doing blind contours is an excellent method for forcing one to really see and translate onto a flat plane what you are observing. It is an exercise that can get you unblocked and yet in the process produce some happy results to which others relate. The process is simple but takes intense concentration focusing on the relationship between eye, brain and hand.  This process will help you loosen up and yet produce some exciting and interesting art. After demonstration you will do two or three quick ink drawings and afterward apply paint.
