Using Contour as the Framework

January 24, 2016 § Leave a comment

?????????????????????

I will be recommending books that I believe will help you along your journey of self discovery through drawing and will start with my book the Little Book of Drawing; a Friendly Approach. This book is unlike others in that it highlights the contour line as the framework for your personality and emotion, composition, and reveals form and depth.  My drawing of Lauren illustrates the importance of the contour.  Notice that my contour is unique with its curvilinear quality and quirkiness.  Yours will be much different.  By allowing your hand and pencil to become an extension of your eye, you lose your inhibitions and connect with the subject.  This gradated pencil drawing allows that line or contour to show through.
