Contour Drawing, Continued
Cross contour is outline drawing of objects but, with topographical cross-
hatching indicating surface characteristics and mass. To draw in cross
contour, study only the object, not the paper surface for the outline. Draw
the outline in blind contour. Draw in basic contour, vertical and horizontal
lines that appear to lay on the surface of the drawn object compresses or
expands to imply surface texture. This exercise also develops perceptions of
edges and surface characteristics.
