The intense concentration is palpable as people begin doing blind contour drawing – drawing where they are not looking at the paper, only at their hand as they move the pencil on paper at the same rate as study the contours of their hand. Blind contour drawings are often more exciting than drawings where the artist has looked at the paper!
