Blind Contour Friday # 5

Blind Contour Drawing - Manu Reading
This is what I drew this week.. Actually I still need to draw one for this Friday.. 
Here's Manu, reading his ebook on Nook... He's been kind of hooked on to the nook ever since it came home! Well, at least I don't have to move bulky books here and there!

Well, all that staring distracted him so much that as soon as I finished drawing a blond contour, he took my sketchpad and drew a blind contour of me!!
I pretty often end up drawing him, when I am just too uninspired by everything else.. 
Manu's Blind Contour Drawing - ME!!!

BTW, I am the featured artist in Peggy Stermer-Cox's Blind Contour Friday this week.. Come and visit us, a group of people who every now and then, let our hands and eyes take control of the page - only, the eyes are responsible for seeing the subject and the hand is entirely responsible for taking care of the drawing.. It is fun!

Thanks Peggy...

Your blind contours get better and better, no wonder Peggy featured you.

Hi Shalini, Thank you for the mention! Both blind contour drawings are wonderful! Manu's could be a regular! I really like the interesting shapes and lines of contour drawing; it captures the subject wonderfully well! Oh, would you like to add your link to Mister Linky? And Happy New Year!

Thanks Sue, and thanks Peggy...
Manu is flattered!! :) He really believes that he can't hold a pencil right on the paper!
