‘Blind contour drawing is an act of being present. The artist, the pencil and the object are the only three things that exist in the world. It won’t look perfect, yet that’s the best part. When I’m done and look down for the first time, I’ll see some features are completely inaccurate. However, other parts will have some strange bit of realistic detail that otherwise wouldn’t have been captured if I was looking. This technique teaches the importance of not being in control. To be flexible with yourself is to honor yourself and the same goes for your art and your life’. @cleaux__
