Contour drawing is an essential technique in the field of art because it is a strong foundation for any drawing or painting; it can potentially modify a subject’s form through variation within the lines. Its objective is to capture the life, action, or expression of the subject.

This method of drawing is widely accepted among schools, art institutions, and colleges as an effective training aid and discipline for beginner artists. In the hands of a talented master, the line that conveys contour can deliver a load of visual pleasure that can be astonishing.
