Line A visual element of length. It can be created by setting a point in motion
Cross contour Lines that appear to wrap around a form in a pattern that is at an angle to the outline of the form.
Implied line An invisible line created by positioning a series of points so that the eye will connect them and thus create movement across the picture
Psychic line A mental connection between two points or looking in a certain direction, which causes the eye to follow toward the intended focus.
Gesture A line that does not stay at the edges but moves freely within forms. These lines record movement of the eye as well as implying motion in form.
Contour A line used to follow the edges of forms and thus describe their outlines
Calligraphy A measure of relative lightness or darkness.
Values A measure of relative lightness or darkness.
Lost-and-found contour A description of a form in which an object is revealed by distinct contours in some areas where as other edges simply vanish or dissolve into the ground.
Artistic shorthand Line is artistic shorthand and can describe ad identify shapes through outline and contour

Contour Drawing When line is used to follow the edges of forms, to describe their outlines.

Volume There are some ways to convey volume in something that looks like something completely different.
Expressing mood and motion Using different types of line and line weight can create a different mood or show motion
Cross-hatching Cross-hatching can be used to create value.
Applying line as value to textiles Using lines to create dark and light is not only use in drawing but in textiles by changing the space and direction of the threads throughout the piece

Dark line technique The use of dark line in a design is often belittled as a crutch but heavy lines support the theme of construction.
