I’m taking an eight-week drawing class from Seattle architect and artist Anita Lehmann, whose urban sketches appear on the Seattle Urban Sketchers blog. At our first class, we did a few drawing exercises made popular by Betty Edwards’ book, Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain. A favorite of mine is modified blind contour, a technique I used for these self-portraits. To learn what a modified blind contour is, see another self-portrait I did back in January.
Although these self-portraits are not exactly flattering, the bald-faced honesty and integrity of the line are strangely appealing.
