A vocabulary of lines – part one

I love working with colour, the playfulness of it, how quick it changes, the feelings it evokes …I could continue experimenting with it for weeks & weeks, but feel I need to take a break from all this playfulness to have a closer look at my vocabulary of lines.

Or more precisely: work on a personal language of lines. I’m not necessarily looking for pretty marks, rather I want to make lines that feel like they belong to me. I like repetition and pattern, as long as it doesn’t look mechanical. I like «nervous» lines, squiggly lines, lines that are both strong and light …

A vocabulary of lines – part one, sketchbook notes.

(The funny thing is I sort of know what I like, even if I have yet to figure out what this would look like …)

      Thank you 😘 I’m studying hard to achieve the basic skills needed for this new journey in my life. A very good thing, despite all the horrible effects of covid-19, is the quality and incredible range of online education it has cleared the path for.
