Take out the coloured crayons, pencils or pens. Lets do some line drawings but using as many colours as you want. The idea is to do some outline drawings, but instead of just using a black line, vary your use of line by using a variety of colour.



Use colours randomly or perhaps colours suggested by the imagery.

Its a good way to develop your own personal sense of colour.


Subject matter could be figures, still life, landscapes, etc.



POST YOUR ARTWORK FOR THIS PROJECT IN THIS THREAD!!

Looking forward to seeing colourful lines!!



Here are some colourful line drawings from other artists.

Picasso, Maurizio Anzeri, Andreas Fischer, and finally David Hockney.

I've done a few colour line drawings - only in ATC's so far. So I am looking forward to trying some larger works.
