Pure Contour Drawing Exercise

For this exercise I had to draw my hand while not looking at the paper. I squeezed my fingers together and stared at the lines in my palm. My eyes scanned my palm a milimeter at a time and my hand traced what I saw. This caused my hand to draw very slowly and precisely. I set an alarm for 5 minues so I didn't think about time (a left brain activity) for my first drawing, which was only a few lines when I was done. The drawing I posted below was done in 10 minutes and I was happily surprised by the results. While drawing my mind was in full right brain mode and I noticed the music I was listening too sounded like familiar sounds but I couldn't make out the words being sang.
