The Bark :: Le tronc

I have been exploring with my students the power of the line… the “crosshatched” line, the “straight” line, the “wavy” line, the “contour” line, the “shadow/highlight” line, the “look/hold/draw” type of lines, the working “blind” lines, the “restating” line… ooh maman! So many type of lines. I decided today to show one example. A mix of straight and curved lines… quite simple in fact.

Avec mes élèves nous explorons les différents types de lignes en dessin. Je ne connais pas les termes en français malheureusement mais si vous voulez connaître ceux que nous explorons, voir le texte en anglais ci-haut. Mais juste pour dire qu’il y en a tellement… que j’ai décidé d’en dessiner un, juste pour le fun -)

Paper: Moleskine Sketchbook
Fountain Pen: Pilot Flexi Grip EF
