Line Drawing

I love lines. I love the simplicity of them, I love the potential in them, and I love how everyone can make them. Drawing needn't be an exclusive club that only the practiced or 'gifted' take part in. if you can pick up a pen and make one line all you have to do is make another, and then another. Everyone can experience the joy of making lines. Below are a few examples of wonderful lines.

‘…if you want to work in line I think that it is the loveliest medium of all.’ 

-David Hockney

I never talk when I am drawing a person, especially if I’m making line drawings. I prefer there to be no noise at all so I can concentrate more. You can’t make a line too slowly, you have to go at a certain speed; so the concentration needed is quite strong. It’s very tiring as well. If you make two or three line drawings, it’s very tiring in the head, because you have to do it all at one go, something you’ve no need to do with pencil drawings…Its exciting doing it, and I think it’s harder than anything else; so when they succeed, they’re much better drawings, often.

  "I have always considered drawing not as an exercise of particular dexterity… but as a means deliberately simplified so as to give simplicity and spontaneity to the expression, which should speak without clumsiness, directly to the mind of the spectator." -Matisse
