Video - Contour Lines Episode I: Artist Dick Termes introduces the concept of contour surface lines, which run across forms to draw out the form. He stresses that the lines and strokes should go parallel to the edges of the forms and shows how that applies to the curved cylinders and spheres. He draws a large piece of fabric starting with the outline lines and adds the contour lines. Ultimately, he demonstrates how important contour surface lines are by erasing them and leaving only the outlines.
