One-And-A-Half Blind Drawings

I began a series of blind drawings. This is a technique whereby one does not look at the paper when sketching the subject. I try to use my eye to trace the contour of the figure I am drawing whilst moving my pen point across the paper. The hope is to link the eye movement with the motion of the pen point.  I find that my eye always skips forward. I have to work to slow down my gaze.

I was trying to do two sketches in the picture below. I ran out of time.
