Extending your Observation Skills
Just like blind contour drawing, full contour drawing builds your observational skills.
In blind contour, you observe and record. In full contour you observe, record, critique, & correct.
This adds the thinking about your work back into the drawing.
The first new step is a self critique. You start your full contour drawing the same as a blind contour.
The new step is to stop every inch or so and look at the drawing.
Compare the 2-D line you drew to the actual implied line/contour of your object.
If the mark on the paper appears correct, observe the object, and continue the line.
The corrections should take place before you erase the mistake.
Corrections should be done while observing the object being drawn. Do not look at the paper when making a correction.
When a correction is complete, erase the lines that were in error.
It’s OK if it takes a few corrections to get a line right!
Although these two concepts are not unique to contour drawing, we will be dealing with them during this drawing.
Foreshortening is a technique used to create the illusion of an object receding strongly into the distance or background.
Overlapping is when parts of an object are hidden from sight by another, closer object. Overlapping techniques add depth to yourworkby positioning some objects behind others.
