Line Drawing


This was an exercise I did in my sketchbook to practice “seeing” details and values. I worked from a photograph and at first, it was quite daunting as to where to begin! I started by drawing one continuous line (contour drawing). This method simplified the image and allowed me to work fairly quickly. After I’d outlined the image I was able to fill in the dark areas and then it began to make sense. I’m quite happy with the outcome!
