Lines. What I just learned.

I have been drawing and painting my whole life
and it never ceases to amaze me how much there
is still to learn.

Today in the studio I discovered some cool
things about lines.

Lines can give your art a feeling of spontaneity
and scale without losing or markedly changing
what you have already made!

It’s a shortcut to energizing your painted surfaces
by adding in a relatively minor mark.

And what is so friggin amazing to me, is that
a line that is truly made with abandon and freedom,
will retain this energy even when partially covered.

In other words, even if we see just parts,
it still shows the energy of the whole line!

Understanding these aspects of lines is huge.
Moving forward, I will be drawing way more
into my work.

Is this something new to you too?

Let’s talk about this in the comments below
