A line is a line

A line is a line, and a line becomes a portrait, an abstract, a landscape or anything I wish. When approached this way, a line is just a line, no matter the subject. I can focus on the line , I can forget my fears of not rendering a good likeness in a portrait,  a good atmosphere in a landscape. It is liberating.

Une ligne est une ligne, et cette ligne devient un portrait , de l’abstrait, un paysage ou ce que je veux. Vue de cette manière, une ligne est seulement une ligne, peut importe le sujet. Je peux me concentrer sur cette ligne, je peux oublier mes peurs de ne pas faire un portrait ressemblant, de ne pas rendre l’atmosphère d’un paysage. C’est libérateur.

  1. yeah. the way i see it, if you make an interesting/exciting line, you’ll have an interesting/exciting drawing. no matter what you draw. of course composition also comes into play as a finished work – still… excellent line, excellent drawing. way fun. aloha.
