Contour Drawing

Establishing a foundation for drawing

Gesture drawing is a quick drawing done rapidly to establish, size, shape, and position of the drawing. 

Gesture Drawing Should be quick and mostly done without picking up your drawing tool. The end result should look as if it were vibrating.

This method also helps to establish style. Gesture drawing can bring out the unexpected. 

Contour Drawing is like gesture drawing but is done afterward and slowed down to establish outlines and details. Contour Drawing with set the tone for the rest of your drawing as boundaries and edges of values are established at this point.
