Part 2, Project 3, ex 2 Detail and Simple Line

Select a natural object with interesting detail and, using a black fibre-tipped pen or a similarly ‘non-expressive’ tool (i.e. where the line does not change in width easily) create a simple line drawing on a sheet of A4 paper. Concentrate on the object and, as far as possible, do a continuous line drawing. Try not to lift your pen from the paper – this exercise is meant to make you aware of your ability to make a simple line flow across the space of the paper, creating the impression of three dimensions.
