Intuition is the topic for this chapter.
The exercise the author Jacob Nordby, suggest is blind contour drawing.
He stayed it can “take you out of your logical, results-oriented mind and into the realm of pure observation and creative flow.” Page 65
So here goes…
This is a plant I have in my window sill, thought it would make an interesting blind contour drawing.
Here’s the finished blind contour drawing…
Then the next creative exercise is intuitive painting. He states it is “an amazing tool for developing and honoring your intuition.” Page 67
I used watercolor paints.
I really liked that both of these exercises were in one chapter.
It helped me to not fully concentrate on perfection. But I need to admit it was a challenge to not look down at the paper doing blind contour drawing.
I want to repeat this exercise again.
