During this lesson we focused on different types of line to create a contour drawing. We looked at the WEIGHT of a line, how dark and thick it is, and how this will make it jump out from the paper (if it is a strong, dark line) or sink into the paper (if it is light or thin). To support us when observing our apple we used a sharpie to draw around the apple and show the contour lines on a 3D object.
We used inks, oil pastels, brushes, pencil and graphite to vary the range of lines and create a series of artworks. These art works will then be presented within their sketchbooks to achieve a more thought out response to the drawings.
