In her book “Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain” Betty Edwards suggests training the eye and hand to work in sync by looking at the subject and not at the paper when drawing. This takes quite a bit of practice but I have found that my drawing has dramatically improved since implementing this advice. Here is a delightful tangle to practice with. Just slow down your eye and trace one vine trying to keep your hand moving at the same speed as your eye.
