Out­lin­ing

ImagineFX - - Traditional Artist Workshop -

I pre­fer to use a dis­tinct out­line in my art­work, whether it’s us­ing thin out­lines or bold out­lines. This helps to give a dis­tinct look to a piece and is use­ful for achiev­ing a cer­tain mood. It can help pin­point the viewer’s eye to a cer­tain area. It also gives a stylised look, if that’s what you are hop­ing to achieve. How­ever, it isn’t all about the fi­nal ef­fect. When at the be­gin­ning stages of a piece, I find an out­line de­fines the work be­fore I add coloured pen­cils or paint.
