The Process of Blind Contour

Blind Contour is a technique of drawing where the artist draws one continuous line to create a form, all while not looking at the surface they are marking. Some artists use this technique to warm up when they begin a drawing session. This allows them to focus and get into the mindset of seeing the figure or object they intend to draw. This relates to visual thinking because it is a way to map out your perspective when drawing. In other words how your eyes follow a figure or form. This process slows you down and allows the artist to reflect on how they process visual information and how they may translate it into physical images or drawings.
