Down South

We are leaving for the sunny beaches of the south — Cuba –, one of the last bastions of the communist world, so I will be back to post some other drawings in two weeks. Mojito time!

Here are examples of “blind contour drawing” and this technique is great for taking out the stiffness in your hand and arm and letting the flow begin. You focus on the object that you are drawing without looking at your piece of paper, and you quickly readjust by going over the same areas, without ever lifting your pen from the paper. Alot of fun and a great stress reducer.
