  • 1. Contour Drawing
  • 2. Contour Line• Contour drawing - Drawing in which contour lines are used to represent subject matter. A contour drawing has a three-dimensional quality, indicating the thickness as well as height and width of the forms it describes.
  • 3. Contour lines• Lines that surround and define the edges of a subject, giving it shape and volume. These should not be confused with a form’s outlines.
  • 4. • Making a contour drawing with a continuous line is a classic drawing exercise (sometimes modified as a “blindcontinuous-line contour”): with eyes fixed on the contours of the model or object, draw the contour very slowly with a steady, continuous line without lifting the drawing tool or looking at the paper.
  • 5. • Practice creating simple contour line drawings of onions. The pattern on the skin of the onion will help you to see cross-contour lines, which help to give a shape volume.
  • 6. • Discussion Questions:• 1. Describe the lines Warhol used to draw his subjects.• 2. How does he achieve volume without much use of shading?• 3. Warhol did not use an eraser; he would just start a new drawing. Why do you think he did this?• 4. What does drawing without an eraser cause you to do differently in your drawing?
  • 7. Philip Guston
  • 8. Henry Matisse
  • 9. EgonSchiele
  • 10. Andy Warhol
