MON. 9/10 PROPORTIONS: Organizational Line Drawing

Susan Hix
The M/W class began proportional studies. Susan's drawing above is an excellent example of the Organizational Line technique. Organizing lines enclose the positive and negative areas by building an armature across the composition. They take measurement and relate the parts to each other. The drawing above is like a "road map" in that you can see the path and decisions that Susan made in sketching out the form. Look closely at the vertical and horizontal lines and you should see that the placement is not arbitrary rather each line identifies the relationship between two or more areas of the form.
