Our lesson is a practice of different lines. Contour lines, Parallel lines, Crosshatching, Dots. Stylized line, and Direct line.
- CONTOUR lines follow the contour or the round shape of an object. The bend of the line gives the look of roundness.
- PARALLEL lines are parallel to each other. They may vary in thickness and in closeness to give the effect of roundness.
- CROSSHATCHING are parallel lines that cross over each other in a fine grid giving the effect of darkness.
- STYLIZED line is a line that may be fluid in bending around an object and it may be of various thicknesses.
- DIRECT line is a line that is clean and even without variation of thickness, it gives the effect of a drawing that looks like a mechanical illustration.
Students should practice each technique.
A project is attempted. Being a first project students may pick the technique they want to attempt.
