July 2020 Challenge

July 2020 Challenge

This month challenge your drawing skills!

The Challenge: Pick any subject matter you would like, though consider figures or still lifes, and create a continous line drawing. This is not a blind drawing exercise so you can look at both your subject and your surface. Don't lift your pen or pencil though!

"A continuous line drawing is produced without ever lifting the drawing instrument from the page. This means that, in addition to outlines and internal shapes, the pencil must move back and forth across the surface of the paper, with lines doubling back on each other, so that the drawing is one free-flowing, unbroken line. To avoid the temptation to erase lines, it can be helpful to complete a continuous line drawing with an ink pen, varying the line weight, as needed, to indicate perspective and areas of light and shadow. Like the drawing methods described above, this drawing method develops confidence and drawing speed, and encourages your eyes and hand and brain to work together. Continuous line drawings work best with in-depth observation of your subject, without interference from your thinking mind."(from:
