Last night the M/W class worked on Contour Line Drawings.  The Contour method utilizes a slow, single, incisive line that defines the exterior contours (edges & outlines) as well as interior contours (details, planes & overlapping forms).  When the line quality is the same throughout, the line is addressing shape relationships.  In other words, connecting the parts to make the whole.  When accenting is employed, the line may describe changes in plane, weight, color, texture and value.Here are four examples from  last night's class. Drawings by (from top to bottom): Autumn La Rue, Eduardo Barrera, Leah Erickson and Taylor Bihn.
