Graphite on paper, 8.5" x 10"
One of the challenges of learning how to draw is the exercise of "Contour Drawing."
When you make a blind contour drawing, your eye travels along the contours of an object and you convince yourself that the pencil in your hand drawing on the paper is actually touching the surface where your eye is tracking. You don't take your eye off the object, and therefore you don't get to see the drawing develop on the paper. That's what makes it a "blind" drawing.
This exercise is like practicing scales on the piano, it's not supposed to look good, it's just part of getting better as an artist.
