Hah! That kid just fell off his skateboard.
A contour drawing is a drawing that has just lines depicting its subject. The French word contour means “outline”. Through the use of just lines dimension is indicated in the drawing, showing the subject’s form as well as shape. It is an exercise that teaches an artist to focus on shape, form, and mass to convey meaning rather than colour, shading, texture, and fine details.

Turn of the Wheel (Morgan & Guinevere) (Work in Progress), C.nick, Graphite, 2014, 11 X 14
I’ve waited a while to do this because I wanted to feel a bit of autumn in the air, to feel the season starting to change, before I started it. The concept is one half of the face is Morgan and the other half is Guinevere. It is almost certain that way back in history Morgan and Guinevere were goddesses in some capacity. Morgan has strong ties to the colder months and Guinevere has strong ties to fertility and thus the warmer months. So this depicts the seasons and the transitioning of the year that these two women represent.
