Art Starts with a Line
Art Starts with a Line: A creative and interactive guide to the art of line drawing | Erin McManness
4 posts | 2 read | 15 to read
Line drawing utilizes both fine and bold lines to create sophisticated artwork that can stand alone or be incorporated into patterns, logos, stationery, branding, journals, scrapbooks, and more. Art Starts with a Line is approachable for artists of any skill level, no prior drawing experience needed! This form of art requires minimal tools, making it both affordable and portable. Following a brief introduction to tools and materials, as well as some easy exercises and techniques for warming up to basic drawing tools, you will explore a variety of subject matter. You'll draw plants and flowers, architecture and cityscapes, animals, and everything in between. These projects aren't restricted to black and white either! You'll find techniques for adding color with colored pencil, marker, pen, even digitally. Art Starts with a Line presents everything you'll need to know to learn how to successfully create line drawings of all types. Whether your goal is to create a custom logo for a client, or to simply decorate your planner, it's all here.

I live in the arts district within walking distance of a bunch of small galleries, all connected by the "Art Line," which links works of public art. It's fabulous! This is one example, which combines a don't-step-in-the-lava game with a prompt to decode the words in between.

This just arrived! My never-ending quest to learn how to draw some basic things. And an excuse to use all of my lovely colored pens and markers that I keep collecting. 😂

This book has simple designs that will make even first-time doodlers look good! It is divided into 5 parts (Borders, Banners, and Letters; Botanicals; Architecture and City Life; Animals & Insects; and Everyday Life) and each is a small treasure trove of illustrations. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
