Room: Contour Lines

Drawing the art room in contour lines was hard because there were a lot of small details and it was hard to keep up the motivation to continue drawing. This project was fun and seeing the final product, it was worth doing. Also, next time I do a project like this, I know better to not rush and to take my time.

Instruments: Contour Lines

The first project with contour lines was to draw instruments. The instruments that we had to draw was a guitar, a trumpet, a clarinet, and a violin. Drawing instruments was hard and having to draw them in pen made it that much harder. Also it was frustrating because the lines you dew wouldn't always be straight and if you mess up on a detail, you have to keep going because you aren't able to erase it.

Introduction to contour lines

As an introduction to contour drawings, the class drew hands. First, the class drew their hand without looking at it. The second time we drew our hand, we were able to draw our hand while both looking  at the paper and our hand. While drawing we were not able to lift up the pencil. The drawing was not supposed to look like a sketch, but a continuous line.


Drawing bottles was very difficult. Sometimes it is overwhelming when you are trying to capture both the light and the shadows throughout the bottle. Also the shape can be very irritating, especially when you are perfectionist. What helped me with this project was when Mrs. Rossi went over drawing the circles to give the drawing more dimensions.

Drawing Introduction

As an introduction into drawing, the class drew the fruits in front of them. I drew a orange that had circular shadows on the bottom and I also drew a value chart at the top that helps with gaging how dark I should shade on my drawing.
