3.0 Line Exercises

And now for a little practice! On the following pages you will find large exercise spaces for your first pencil exercises. The left-hand pages have been drawn on for your guidance, and you should try to reproduce the same lines with the least possible deviation. This will require a certain amount of patience of course; immediate success cannot be expected. The main thing is to draw each line correctly and thoughtfully, and your eye and muscles will gradually acclimatize themselves to straight lines.

Evenness of spacing will need some concentration, but minor irregularities caused by initial lack of practice or by trembling of the hand from the beat of your pulse should not deter you. The body should be relaxed for drawing. The slight physical tremors that can occur following great physical exertion will affect the results on paper.

Turn the book square on its side and draw parallel lines from left to right across the page. You will see it is not that difficult. Each stroke will give you added confidence!
