Christmas decorations with lines

The Christmas decorations are drawn with a three-dimensional effect using parallel lines. Through the combination of colored parallel lines in sequence we create an optical illusion of volume. In these drawings made by students of Grade 6th, we traced the outlines of simple Christmas decorations from a printed template. Every student chose five or six decorations and traced them on a drawing sheet in a free composition. You can buy the worksheets with 15 different decorations here below:

After drawing the outlines we chose four or five colored felt tip pens an started drawing parallel lines in sequence. The lines on the background are perfectly horizontal, but when the line meets the outline of a decoration it becomes an arc which cover all the object. Then the line becomes horizontal again on the background. We repeated this method all along the drawing. The effect is as a striped veil laying on the objects, covering them.
