Supply Familiarization/Blind Contours

I put some time in today on familiarizing myself with the new art supplies. I drew a few lines of varying widths and darkness levels. I drew a few scribbles. I drew a few shapes.

Supply Familiarization

Then I started on Week 1 Assignment 2, Blind Contours. You place the point of your pencil on the paper. Without looking at your paper or lifting your pencil, move the pencil slowly, like an ant, in unison with your eyes as you move them over the various contours of your subject. It is much harder than it sounds.

Not the best of the drawings today but certainly not the worst. The whole lot of them are on my Flickr photostream.
