Blind Contour

Our assignment was to draw our face and hands with out looking at the page while doing so. Then we had to turn one of the pieces into something. I chose the self portrait and turned it into a lady with a bowl of fruit on her head.

The first thing I did was turn the picture in all different directions until I could find something to turn into. I ended up turning it completely upside down. I began drawing features of a face as best as I could to fit the style of the drawing.
