Contour Drawing

This morning both girls sat with maths books but just couldn’t get motivated to do anything so Skye got out her art book and started with sketching a face, she then showed me blind contour drawing. Basically you use you pen or pencil in a continuous movement and draw something, without peeking! Sounds easy but it’s so tricky not to look. Suggestions to help are to attach a paper plate to your pen. It look fun so Poppy had a go and then me, I find it difficult to resist getting involved with art 🙂

This is Skye’s sketch and some blind contour drawings, I particularly love the collection of faces. I think in a frame they would look rather cool 🙂

and mine…I like the bear but I don’t think he is plump enough 🙂  I might add some colour to the flowers though.

Poppy added some colour to hers and created another sketch inspired by contour drawing;
