Blind Contour (shaking out the rust)

Originally uploaded by SideShowMom.
My coin scarf for belly dance. I did most of it blind, just looking enough to fill in some of the beads and color it in with PITT pens. The sepia lines on the page are courtesy my bear cub. He decorated my moleskine for me a couple weeks ago!

I've had a bit of a drawing drought, made myself too busy with other things, etc. So I just did it.

I'm quite impressed with your ability to do this blind! You've really captured a lot of the "energy" inherent in the garment, too.

Lovely capture of the fabric, contrasting with the detail of the coins. And anything red grabs me :-)

Wow, you sure picked a difficult item to draw this way!! But I'm impressed with the end result. I agree with did capture the 'energy' of this piece very well. Well done. :o)

What a nice sketch-such a complicated thing to do BC! Wonderful lines.

Thank you Ladies! Coming from such talents as you, your praise is high indeed!! But it's not about praise, is it? It's the joy of making the art, of holding the pens, of seeing the subject, of seeing it finished! Blessings to you!

And now you've shown me what the woman at the chemo treatment center was wearing as a head scarf... Was it you? It looked very exotic and wonderful. I don't know how I would tie it to have it stay and look that way.

Happy dancing.
