The Grid had to start somewhere so, where else than with as single square created form criss crossed lines
I then used my previous subject while duplicating the basic shape on top of it.
I Then decided to leave behind my previous theme and focus on the grid aspect starting basic
I then created this grid and saw some cool shapes within and wanted to highlight them
I tried to do a similar thing with this grid. I experimented with a different filling tool(the shading lines) which I then use for all my works to come.
I then simplified the grid as it may be too busy and highlighted this new method of filling a shape which looks really good as the lines variation and smudging creates unusual lines and shapes.
This image was an experiment to see how I could apply this technique to other situations and shapes. It was a Success because it introduced me to the smudging lines with a very watered down paint, which I use later on.
This is another experiment solely working on the smudging of line shapes and the different more unusual effect I could attain using the line blocking technique. The composition of this piece is unusual and was mostly up to my sub-concious.
-This drawing is combination of the original grid work and the line technique I have been developing. The design is very centralised, as the lines move out wards from the box they start to split/scatter and fall down wards. The poke-a-dots within the square aid in focusing the centre of the image.
This was another use of the idea of lines breaking off one another as well as the smudging technique. The composition is very heavily top right orientated and then moves across the top and left edge.
-The next set of six images have the same composition as each other they use a triangular composition going from left to right as the pylons gets smaller it creates the effect of distance and depth with minimal context, this diminishes through out the pieces.
-The bold darkness of this drawing catches your eye. Other wise it has nothing else going for it.
-The next two images uses the line technique to make it more interesting. If I was going to repeat this image I would have tried to smudge the ink with the watery black paint in the central pylon.
In this image I managed to duplicate the line pattern from the swirling piece before, its very effective and smudging occurs within the central pylon, which was the goal.
-The next two images takes advantage of the compositional effect of leading lines as it takes your eye left to right along the line clusters.
This Image uses the leading lines effect as stated above. It also uses the contrast of the black on white lines to draw your eye to the darker line cluster.
-This image uses a centralised bottom heavy composition and looks like all the lines flake off the original or that all the lines are coming together to create one, that can be left up for interpretation .
