Blind Contour and Left Hand Sketches

Charcoal and Pencil on 18x24 Newsprint

Blind contour drawings (Drawing without looking) are very good to get the hand eye coordination going. Drawing with your off hand is also a very good excercise. The top are blind contour drawings with my left hand. They force me to really look at what I am drawing.

The second page is a bunch of everything. Quick sketches, blind contours, left hand drawing and just playing with charcoal. I was really surprised at how easily I could draw with my right hand after doing so much with my left. It was great practice.
