Hi, I’m Jacqui. In the world of creativity I describe myself as a photographer. I’ve wanted to learn to draw for a while now. Watercolors were the beginning but I quickly switched to drawing. Painting watercolors without knowing anything about art is freeing because you don’t know anything about technique. But it can also be frustrating because you don’t know anything about technique. I bought the “Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain”workbook and I’m doing those exercises while also reading the book. My first post EVER in WordPress (which I’m still trying to get the hang of, please bear with me) is this blind “Pure Contour Drawing” of the wrinkles and lines in my left palm. Is it okay to load images into this Drawmo! account or should I be linking from Snapfish (I don’t use Flickr)?

Blind contour drawing.
left hand November 3, 2006
I tried a blind contour draw of my left hand. I did it in pen because I knew at some point I would look, not be satisfied and be tempted to erase it. By the time I did look – it was too late, the little finger & friends had already been severed and time was nearly up.
