Contour Line Sketch

In this drawing we were simply creating a rough contour line drawing.
A Contour Line is a line that defines the inner and outer edges of a form and suggests three-dimensionality.
In this sketch done in my drawing 1, class cross countour lines are also used.
Cross-Contour lines are multiple, curving, parallel lines running over a surface of an object horizontally and/ or vertically which describes its surface topographically.
The image shown is of a still life of sheets placed overlarge boxes in the drawing room.


  1. Very interesting. I'm learning all these artsy terms!

  2. I love following your blog. I keep wondering what will be next.
