Continuous line drawings provide an excellent way to help children develop hand eye coordination. Continuous line drawings are made by keeping the pen or pencil in contact with the paper for the duration of the exercise, and by matching speed of looking with speed of drawing.

Full guidance is given below.

Drawing a face from a life model, I start at the nose, and draw the entire fa. The continuous line drawing technique consists of starting and completing a piece in one sitting: after it touches the paper, the pencil only rises from it once the drawing is finished. Looking at Picasso’s body of work, one can deduce that he was always searching for different approaches for innovative shape descriptions.

One Line Face Drawings

Hello artist friends. I hope everyone is doing well today and ready to be creative. A few months ago we talked about some different types of Warm up Exercises you could do. One of those exercises was contour drawing. Today I would like to show you how to take that concept and turn it into a work of art. Please join me for my continuous line drawing face art tutorial.

Drawing one line faces can be very fun and enjoyable if you allow it too be. Don’t worry about the outcome and just let it be fun.

Let’s getting started gathering up some supplies.

Blind Contour Drawing Face

We are going to begin today’s lesson with a blind contour drawing self-portrait. When doing a blind contour drawing, you are forced to really look at what you are drawing. Because you are not looking at your drawing, you have no choice but to focus on what your subject matter. Today we will be drawing our own faces.

Choose a marker to draw with and place it somewhere on your paper. Without looking at your paper begin drawing your own face. Pick a spot on your face to start and work your way around your entire face, one feature at a time.

Do not lift your marker off of the paper at any time. This will be a continuous line drawing. And don’t peek at your paper until you are completely finished. Let yourself relax and don’t worry about the end results. There will be areas were you will have to back-track over previous lines and you will need to guess at where you are at on your paper. Allow yourself to have fun with it though.

When you are finished, go ahead and look at your drawing. If you’re like me, your drawing made you giggle. Repeat this process a couple more times using a different marker each time. Allow yourself to experiment, have fun, and enjoy this process.

I did three different drawings with three different markers. Here is what I came up with. I think I liked the thicker marker best.

We are going to do a similar drawing, but this time you can peek at your paper from time to time to see where you are at. Again, do not lift your marker off of the paper. You can choose your favorite marker from the previous exercise, or choose a new one.

Decide on a where to start, and begin your drawing. Do not lift your marker off of the paper at any time. However, this time you may take quick peeks at your drawing. Continue to focus on your reflection or selfie though. You still want to pay more attention to your subject matter and not the drawing itself.

Continuous Line Drawing Face with Markers

A few months ago I bought a Tombow Dual Brush pen set (pastel palette). They have been sitting in a drawer in my art closet since then. This felt like the perfect opportunity to give them a try. I began with Pink Red (723) for the shirt. This is not a color I would typically choose for a drawing, which is the exact reason I used it.

I continued adding color to my continuous line drawing face with the Tombow markers. For the face I used Pale Yellow (062). Once again because it’s a color I wouldn’t typically use for coloring a face. Mint Green (243) was used for my hair, and Lilac (620) for my eyes.

After adding in the color with the markers, I used my Pentel Arts Aqua brush to soften the colors.

I finished the drawing up by going back in with the Tombow markers again and adding in some darker areas.

This one line drawing face was a lot of fun, and it really wasn’t possible to mess it up. It was also a great way to experiment with colors and try new things. As artists, we need to find ways to let ourselves explore areas outside of our normal way of creating things. This is how we grow and develop as artists.
