Untitled 082217

My freeform began with a pencil drawing. Next, alcohol markers emphasized some of the lines and ignored others. Short, stabby curved lines from the markers, along the edges of adjacent shapes, imbued them with three dimensionality. The final step in my process was to wash the enclosed shapes with watercolors, to strengthen the illusion of this composition as a mass of solid shapes.
