The Contour Line Drawing assignment should be completed on 18 x 24 in. drawing paper (not newsprint) using a soft pencil (3B -6B). Choose a complex subject that will fill the page such as a tool, bicycle, engine, car, houseplant, etc.)  If a single object will not fill the page you may use multiple objects similar to the in-class project.  Pay attention to composition.  Remember objects may be more interesting cropped rather than revealing the entire shape.  Employ accenting and line weight variations. In the drawing above, note the accenting specifically around the edges of the chair and flower petals.
