Drawing with straight lines

I seem to have been chasing after myself this week - too much to do, and wanting to do all of it! Time to spend on the online course with Dionne Swift that I stared on Monday has been very hard to come by.

Still, this weekend I've managed to catch up a bit and spent much of yesterday drawing with straight lines using various media for mark making and straight edges of different sizes. I've really enjoyed what I've done. Two examples are shown here, the first trying to achieve curves or near circles and the second using mainly vertical lines ...



Neither of these are quite what we were asked to do but rather my extension of the tasks Dionne gave us. To find out exactly what this is all about you will have to sign up for Drawing for Textiles on Dionne Swift's website - it's well worth the money!

  1. This very much reminds me of a podcast I listened to recently about a photographer who concentrated on images that were depictions of things in nature, but gave the impression of abstracts. Sounds like you are enjoying your course!

  2. I always think it is a good sign when one takes lessons as a starting point rather than a strict instruction. I hope you keep finding the time to enjoy the discipline and the wanderings off!

    1. Still struggling to find the time as it has turned out that the course has come at a tricky time for me - a shame as there's so much to benefit from.
