Breadth piece

This piece is a contour drawing, which is a drawing of only the edges and visible lines of an object, done with pencil and drawing paper. I drew my friend while she painted with her legs up on the table. The contour drawing has a spontaneity about it, showing what is happening at the moment it was drawn. The folds in my friend's shirt show movement, as well as interesting shapes and lines. The curved lines have visual interest and create movement through the work. The lines also create negative spaces. There are areas in the drawing where there are few lines, and there are other areas with many lines, creating balance in the work.
