Calvary Hill 2020 – Continuous Line Drawing
I wanted to draw a simple picture to depict Easter in a way that you could have a go, too.
What to you are the key features of Easter?
- The Rock – Acts 17:24-25 The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by human hands. 25 And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything. Rather, he himself gives everyone life and breath and everything else. (NIV)
- The Cross – Mark 15:39 When the centurion, who was standing right in front of Him, saw the way He breathed His last, he said, “Truly this man was the Son of God!” (NIV)
John 17:1 After Jesus said this, he looked toward heaven and prayed: “Father, the hour has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you.” (NIV)
- Promise of Eternal Life – John 6:40 For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who beholds the Son and believes in Him will have eternal life, and I Myself will raise him up on the last day. (NIV)
- Jesus rose again – John 11:25-26 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?” (NIV)
Continuous Line Drawing means that your pencil/pen/felt pen must stay on the page and keep moving, no fuss.
My first drawing was the best, so I have ‘worked’ the original drawing. I then chose the colours that I thought reflected the saving actions of Jesus. The last step is to add water and see how the water, colour and paper interacted.
I hope you enjoy thinking about what Jesus has done for us. He saved us!
Thank you Heavenly Father for sending your Son!
