Blind Sketching

I have begun a periodic process of blind sketches. I started with the blue, my eyes closed, and just let my hand do what it wanted. I then took the pen, closed my eyes, relaxed, and did the same. I then used the violet, eyes open, to accent what the blindness brought me. I did this last step quickly, not wanting the result to become elaborate or deliberately representational. This meditative exercise has brought my spirit to the surface on many occasions. It was interesting to note the circular patterns my blind steps took. This is a useful exercise in getting started sometimes.
