The above drawings were rendered by three of my students during their first week in beginning drawing. They are examples of blind continuous line drawing. I have mentioned, previously, that I have a soft spot for drawings of this nature. I think it is because they reveal to us that we can actually draw, each and every one of us, if we try to “see” and “feel” the edges of our subjects. I like them because they are the beginning of many artists’ journeys. They speak a simple beauty.
I have posted some new artwork created by my students and fellow artists in this last six weeks on the Student Art 1 Page here. They are from two classes.
One class was beginning drawing. We studied continuous line, cross contour, negative space, perspective, texture and value.
Thank you to all of my students for allowing me to post your work and for sharing your special insights and talent with me!
Echostain’s Blog has just featured an artist who uses her continuous line drawings in her finished work. You can find this post here.
