This week we started our lesson with a continuous line drawing session. And we continued with line weight drawing.
A continuous line drawing is done using a single, unbroken line to develop the image.Many lines make the artwork look like an unfinished artwork.
Lineweight is a term that describes the relative ‘weight’ – strength, heaviness, or darkness – of the line against the background or support. It is governed by the pressure on your drawing tool as you make your line – whether this is decreasing or increasing the pressure on the tip so that it leaves behind more or less medium – or altering the angle so that more of the tip is in contact with the paper.
