A Different Way to Make a Line

I love working with lines in my art. Usually, I use a tool like a pencil to make lines. But today, I thought I would share a different way to create lines and add richness to your work.

Have a look here.

I have found surprisingly beautiful and different lines by exposing the edges of painted shapes. Layering paint can also create subtle differences in line quality, which brings some lines and not others into focus. Exploring lines in this way is so rich, and it can be so mesmerizing and beautiful.

How do you work with lines in your art? Let us know in the comments.

I hope your Sunday is spacious.
