Blind continuous contour line drawing is a hardcore inhibition buster. According to schnick-winky-face Wikipedia:
Blind contour drawing is a drawing exercise, where an artist draws the contour of a subject without looking at the paper
…in this case, continuously without lifting the pencil off the surface.
Obviously, we aren’t attempting masterpieces here, and the results are somewhat hilarious. Surely it’s to be expected when you’re sketching something in one line without looking.
Still, there’s no point being overly fussy about how to fill blank pages. Careless activities like these strip away petty inhibitions.
It feels weird at first, but then kind of exciting, and really funny. These odd drawings help us stop taking ourselves so seriously and stop being so self-critical – essential inspiration.
