    Contour Washes Contour Washes Presentation Transcript

    • Contour Washes Intro to Art - Unit 1 Drawing What You See
    • Project Objectives
      • Variety of scale of drawn object
      • Outline contours in both negative and positive shapes
      • Rhythm and visual movement created through layers of drawings
      • Contour drawing in pen as the emphasis of the drawing
    • A strong composition makes great art!
    • The artist guides your eye through Implied Lines .
    • Choosing a Picture Plane. Low Horizon Line with a Strong Vertical High Horizon Line with a Strong Vertical Classic Triangle
    • The main emphasis is on the low horizon line with a strong vertical. Pieter Breugel the Elder. Hunters in the Snow . (1565)
    • The main emphasis is on the low horizon line with a strong vertical. Pieter Breugel the Elder. Hunters in the Snow . (1565)
    • For your first layer use a low horizon line and strong vertical for the composition.
    • Using a modified contour, draw your object using alternating poses and proportions across the compositional lines.
    • Using a gesso & water mixture, paint in the negative spaces.
    • Outline the object with a thin brush and use a wide brush for the wide areas. Paint on the gesso mixtures with paint strokes which all go in the same direction. The gesso will dry lighter than when you first apply it.
    • For the next layer, the main emphasis is on the high horizon line with a strong vertical. Ramon Casas. Portrait of Eric Satie . (1891)
    • For the next layer, the main emphasis is on the high horizon line with a strong vertical. Ramon Casas. Portrait of Eric Satie . (1891)
    • Second Layer
      • Draw a high horizon line and strong vertical.
      • Use a MODIFIED CONTOUR to draw your object on the compositional plane lines.
      • Alternate the pose and proportions to create a sense of rhythm.
    • Rhythm is movement in which some elements recur regularly.  Like a dance it will have a flow of objects that will seem to be like the beat of music. Repetition .
    • Paint the negative space in the second layer just like the first layer was painted. Ignore the first layer and paint over it. The overlapping layers will create a sense of rhythm. Some areas of the first layer will be painted over and others will not. Remember the goal is RHYTHM not details.
    • In the final layer, the main emphasis is made by diagonal lines that create a triangle. Pablo Picasso. Guernica . (1937)
    • In the final layer, the main emphasis is made by diagonal lines that create a triangle. Pablo Picasso. Guernica . (1937)
    • The Final Layer!
      • Draw the diagonal lines for the compositional plane.
      • Use a MODIFIED contour to draw the object on the compositional lines.
      • Remember to alternate poses and proportions.
    • Use a small brush and paint the positive objects with straight gesso.
    • To complete the project and give the modified contours definition, use a thin black pen to draw the contour outlines of the final layer. DETAIL is important here!
