About This Class

This class for beginners is dedicated to the line, more specifically to the line language. In the first video I'll explain you what the line language is and in the next videos - how to use it practically.

We know what line can be used to make contours. As well as making contours, line can also be used to apply shadows to a drawing. It is called hatching. But we can use line not only for making contours or hatching. Different kinds of line are something like alphabet. With this alphabet we can construct something similar to hieroglyphs. And we can describe the objects in our sketch using these hieroglyphs.

I'll show you in practice how to use the line language drawing the real landscape and I’ll show you how to do measuring and schematics too.

This class gives you new techniques for sketching and builds up your confidence in drawing.
