4) Contour Line

Contour lines are used to follow the edges of a certain form.
In this painting we see very precise and particular lines, describing the man's tousled hair and the bend and folds of his  clothing.  The lines are lighter and more spread out at the bottom, but closer together and darker toward the top around his head for more emphasis.
