Art II - Cross-Contour Line Drawings

After work on contour lines, it was time to move on to CROSS-CONTOUR LINE drawings. While contour lines focus on the outside edges and surfaces, cross-contour lines focus on showing volume and form. Often a student will have to imagine where and how the cross-contours of an object should be depicted. For this drawing, a still-life of chairs covered in fabric served as a starting point for the project plan. Backgrounds were to include lines/designs that helped show the vertical and horizontal planes and help create a feeling of depth. Check out some of the best project examples below:
