2.3 Blind contour drawing

Key words from the brief;

  • Keep contact between whatever you are drawing with and the paper at all times
  • Produce at least four blind contour drawings

What I did

I made a number of blind contour drawings on a evening commute into London Waterloo.

Reflections

What went well

  • This was a really interesting way to interrupt ‘normal’ ways of working in order to generate new thinking and push experimentation into new and unexpected directions.
  • I can see that this is a valuable technique and even based on the small number of drawings above, I can see characters that I can develop (and may choose to use as subjects for Assignment 2).
