Trees branch out with lines.
Telephone wires stretch long and thin.
People are composted with many lines.
Water flows with lines rippling on the surface.
The lines an artist draws suggest a story the artist wants us to see.
The lines from our walking awoke us to the fact that traveling is line, sometimes straight, or curves, or spirals or a circle, as "running around in circles." We walk upstairs in a zig-zag. Our body stands vertically to the horizontal or diagonal path, which can be smooth, rough, thick, or thin. We step on textures.
|Actually, two lines for visibilty \ and z.|
We drive our scooters, bikes, and cars in a line; trains and planes travel in lines. Our time is measured as a line through time. Looking carefully, we connect with others in through lines, our walking, driving, sitting. I wonder if thinking is a line like a sentence.
Assignment for D: Choose one type of line, on pages 8 and 9 draw everything you see, the shapes and textures, in that space.
Send assignment via the 'ART for DRAWN LINES' message on this page. I will send the email address for you to include drawing, title with the letter D, which I will post on this blog.
Also, any comments, suggestions, other observations, or ideas are welcome. Art is to share; we are all artists and creative.
