Yesterday was my last CD & AA session for the year. A third kind of line was discussed in detail, described as the lyric line. We used a thin brush with ink for this exercise. I could not break away completely from my normal style to make the right kind of marks. I would start correctly but lose my way within minutes. For the 3rd piece below I just gave up half way and started enjoying trying to capture a likeness of Javed who was posing for us for these pieces. I intend to do a few soon and attempt to draw sweeping lines to depict the form. One stroke for a line or a curve and no restating for this exercise 😀
Todays lesson was about expressing emotions using line and then using spontaneity in making an “action” painting.
Homework is to do more of these with a title for each piece and an analysis of what we see in the results.
We found the small coffee table restrictive and by the time the second exercise came around the chairs were deserted for the floor.
