So, let's start with the line. The line is one of the most often used art mean in a drawing. It can be thin either thick; short or long by size, by the type straight or curved, by brightness – dark or lite, by purpose – contour or auxiliary, by direction – horizontalm vertical and inclined; at the same time regular or not.

Comparing the lines one can see, that horizontal line gives the rest, it is assotiated with the skyline; vertical one passes the aspiration for upward, inclined one – instability,line string – variable motion, wavelike – regular motion, spiral one – rotation. The notion «withered line», «dynamic line», «intensive line» shows how epithets and metaphors transmit ability of a man use emotional character to any nuance visible properties of a real world. Optical feelings are the start point of a difficult process understanding and interpreting reality to the early stages art idea. The line changes it's image depending on the position looker-on. Vatiable lines differs from the line, taking the strong placement in a space - they are essential part of concrete objects. They can be vertical lines either horizzontal either their intervals. Intervals with eaual lenght, wich are going off the space are shortened theirselves while approaching to the point convergence on the horizont. Vertical and horizontal lines do not change their direction 'cause they are located in the frontal plane. The plane always can be constructed with two parallel lines, so it's placement is connected with the fact, how theese lines are placed in the space.

However before talk about the plain I recomend you to work with the lines. It's easier to learn how to use lines knowingly and to develop the technique with the simple exercises. And than we can start more difficult tasks, for example treatment of light and shade and etc.

The lessons I want to offer you will help you to advance coordination of eyes, brains and hands. You should have a canvas paper and a pencil.

1. Select two points, wich will be the beginning and the finish of a line. Try to see all the line as a whole: make several mental motions, uniteв theese point. Than pull down the pencil and draw the line. You should watch to the end of the line pointed by the point and draw all the line at a time with it's whole lenght, on no account in parts.

After you've done several variants construction line by two points in different directions, you can start drawing curves.

2. Find three strong points: two of them define the lenght and direction of straight line, and the 3rd one deviation scope from the straight. After that join them by the curve.

And now let start advance eye and scaling.

3. Draw several lines and share them "by the eye" by equal parts and test their lenght with the ruler.

Everything is all right? Than practise in a drawing lines, crossed in the angle and dividing angles in half.

Are you satisfacted? If not yet, than you are to repeat theese tasks one more time...

Подвижнические наставления Исаака Сирианина
Если нет у тебя недостатка в потребном тебе, и тело здорово, и не боишься чего-либо сопротивного — и говоришь, что ты можешь при сем чисто шествовать ко Христу, — то знай, что ты болен умом и лишён вкушения славы Божией.
