These drawing demonstrations are here as a teaching aid for people who would like to begin to learn to draw.  These demonstrations show the most important methods to get you started.  I suggest that you practice the continuous line blind contour five or ten times until you feel comfortable drawing without looking at the paper.  This is key to learning to draw.  You must be confident that you can make lines without looking at the paper.   After you have some confidence with the blind contour, practice the quick glance method.   If you would like to get my latest book on drawing, The Practice of Drawing as Meditation, go to the books section of this web site:  www.youcreate.com or write:
