"Elizabeth Layton first began drawing at age 68, with the hope of
finding relief from severe depression following a stroke.
Drawing proved theraputic (she calls it "cure by contour") and she
continued to draw. Since then, her work has been exhibited nationwide
and is greatly admired. She believes that everyone can learn
to draw and that children in particular should be taught to draw at
a early age."

In blind countour drawing you draw the edges, by not looking at what you
"Edges are the place where two things meet. In drawing your hand
the places where the air, the background, meets the surface of the
skin, the place where the fingernail meets the surrounding skin,
the place where two folds of skin meet to form a wrinkle, and
so on are shared edges. The shared edge called a contour, is
drawn as a single line called a contour."
To make a contour line drawing of your hand: 1) tape a piece
of paper to your table. 2) turn your body away from the table
where you can't see the paper. 3) support the hand you are
to draw this will take about 30 minutes to draw.
4) Now ..."Very slowly creeping a milimeter at a time,
move your eyes along the edge of the hand, ovbserving every
minute variation and undulation of the edge. As your eyes move,
also move your pencil point, at the same slow pace on the paper,
recording each slight change or variation in the edge that you
observed with your eyes. Become convinced in your mind that the
information orginating in the observed object (your hand) is
minutely and precisely perceived by your eyes and is and is
simulataneously recorded by your pencil, which registers everything
you are seeing at the moment of seeing"
Blind contour drawing was invented by Kimon Nicolaides in his 1941
book, The Natural Way to Draw.
