Line Drawing / Continuous Line Drawing

Use of Line

Giacometti has built up lines almost sculpting with line like you might wire or wire wool

Egon Schiele 

Maybe not continuous line but I think there is a sense of a line going for a work, a looseness in the way the arms and hands have been drawn

Henry Moore 
A complete master when it comes to drawing. Using a fog of lines to create light and dark and form. Look at how Moore has drawn around the object to create highlights

Claire Rollet 

Beautiful link drawings that have been digitised and digitally coloured. Again probably not continuous line drawings but look at the quality of the line. Rollet is an illustrator, loook at the prints in the shop if you want to look at examples of these landscape images
