Contour drawing

DEFINITION

Drawing in which contour lines are used to represent subject matter. A contour drawing has a three-dimensional quality, indicating the thickness as well as height and width of the forms it describes. Making a contour drawing with a continuous line is a classic drawing exercise (sometimes modified as a "blind continuous-line contour"): with eyes fixed on the contours of the model or object, drawing the contour very slowly with a steady, continuous line, without lifting the drawing tool or looking at the paper. There are other variations on this method.Examples: Henri Gaudier-Brzeska (English, born France, 1891-1915), A Wolf, 1913, drawing on paper, 24.8 x 34.3 cm, Tate Gallery, London.
