Contour line drawing warhol

  1. 1. Contour Drawing
  2. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 7. Philip Guston
  8. 8. Henry Matisse
  9. 9. EgonSchiele
  10. 10. Andy Warhol
