    Cross Contour Drawing - What is Cross Contour Drawing?

    Cross contour lines are drawn lines which travel, as the name suggests, across the form. Cross contours may be horizontal or vertical, as on the right side of the example, or both. Often, in more complex forms, cross-contours will be drawn at varying angles. In this rather lumpy example, the grid of cross-contours looks a bit like the gridlines on a globe or a diagram of a Black Hole in space.

    Cross Contour Drawing for Beginners

    Like contour drawing, cross contour drawing involves drawing an object using only line. Unlike contour drawing, cross contour drawing deals with illustrating the way an object sits in space using lines. For example, if you were to draw a sphere, there would be circular marks inside the sphere that will illustrate the way the sphere is round. See the example image for the way a hand would be drawn using the cross contour technique.

    Cross Contour Line Drawing - Purpose is To expose students to the element of art, line. To teach students the variations and uses of line.
