2. 2. Actual Lines • Actual Lines refer lines that are physically present in a composition. • Types of Actual Lines Contour Lines • Calligraphic Lines • Organizational Line •
3. 3. Contour Lines Describes form through outlines by defining edges • Cross contours define the object by making a grid to describe the surface planes and provide a volume summary. • Gesture drawings are drawn quickly to grasp the essence of the subject than to focus on anatomical details. •
4. 4. Tutorial: How to make a Contour Line Drawing
5. 5. Practice: Contour Line Drawing • Take 10 minutes to draw your own hand in the space provided in the Guided Notes.
6. 6. Calligraphic Lines • root words are greek • • Kalus: beautiful Graphein: writing used for aesthetic purposes • to add energy and a sense of motion to an image • usually decorative • variations of line weight are used •
7. 7. Organizational Lines • used to set up a framework • for the shape of the object • • Can be used to check proportion and angles to arrange and plan a composition • can used as sketches • try different variations • minor adjustments are made
8. 8. Implied Lines Implied lines happen when a line is suggested by the position of other (non line) shapes. • Repetition of similar shapes or color can be arranged to make connections, or to fill in the gaps to make a line • Closure is the inclination for us to connect fragmented information •
9. 9. Implied Lines in Paintings • This painting is “The Deposition” by Caravaggio. • The figures are placed in a way that creates a strong diagonal line leading into the center, and main focus, of the picture.
10. 10. Actual Lines vs Implied Lines Actual Lines refer lines that are physically present in a composition. The lines can describe shapes, add energy to a drawing, or help plan the composition. • Implied lines suggest lines through a series of points, the juxtaposition of shapes through closure. It draws the eye of the viewer in an intentional direction •
11. 11. Functional Lines • Actual and Implied Lines are not used only in art. • • • Where do we find these lines? What is the function of these lines? Are these lines actual or implied?
12. 12. Functional Lines By drawing a plug at the end of these lines, these lines can be read differently. - Has the function changed?
