Learn how to optimize your pen & ink drawings by the use of implied lines in your drawings. Implied lines are lines that are not fully drawn by the artist but are still interpreted by the viewer as completing the shape or form of a subject. A dotted line is an example of an implied line.
In this class, the instructor will lead a series of timed drawing exercises using three subjects. The reference images of these subjects (a feather, two roses, and a luna moth) are provided in the supply list. For example, there will be 12 minutes to draw a feather, then 7 minutes to draw the same feather, then 4 minutes, 2 minutes, and finally, one minute to draw the feather. These timed drawing exercises are not intended to glorify the act of drawing faster. These exercises are simply one way to help an artist identify the key lines in a subject that will suggest the subject to a viewer using implied lines. The act of drawing the same subject repeatedly helps the artist better understand the values and shapes of the subject so that they may capture the subject in a more loose and effortless way.
