Breadth 2

13 x 19

This is a contour drawing of my art teacher.   A contour drawing is a natural outline of an object or person.  It can be drawn with accurate or inaccurate lines.  The emphasis of this drawing is that all the lines point in different directions which allows your eye to circle around the entire drawing.  The pencil lines and the wrinkles in her clothes show movement.  There is also repetition in the folds of her shirt. There is no shading, which gives this drawing a very flat form.  This was a simple drawing but it can be difficult to draw because when drawing a contour piece, you have to let your eyes follow the out line of the object or person, and hardly ever look down at your paper.  My teacher was really fun to draw and I enjoyed the overall outcome of this contour drawing.
