  • Paper.
  • Pencil and eraser.
  • Pens or colored pencils.



  • Start by penciling the outline of some easily recognizable figure, such as a circle, a heart, a hand ...

  • Draw straight, parallel horizontal lines from one edge of the paper to the silhouette you have drawn. Use the colors that you like.

  • Change the straight lines by curved lines that join the drawn surface.

  • Once out of this, continue drawing parallel straight lines until reaching, well opposite end of the paper, or another area of ​​the silhouette.

  • Delete the contour lines you drew with pencil.



First the silhouette and then the paper is filled with curved lines and parallel lines.
