R - Line radiates relationships.

Read other R blogs on A2Z challenge.
Repeating rhythm is like a line in a texture drawn over and over, only repeating a set of textures over and over. When looking at painted landscapes, we see repeating rhythm in the mountains, water, trees, and leaves. All recurring a bit differently as not to bore the viewer, who recognizes or remembers a reality.

While learning about lines, we are drawing non-objective relations. Refining what line represents in our art. So we can use the line to mirror or reflect our reality as interpreted from eyes to the brain to be rendered by our hand to the paper. Always remembering, we are not drawing reality but only what we reflect through our lines.

To review, we can draw about 20 different line, thin or thick, and create multi-textures that repeat and overlap on different shapes. We build our recipes for using line as we experiments and relish what we do, remarkably creating our style - our repeating rules in our works. We will recognize we have a technique while looking the random drawings we have done thus far.

So now we are ready to expand into a new range of relationship with shapes into our style. Before shapes drawn were random. The contour shapes from yesterday assignment were also random, free-formed delineations of edges as we see. Shapes have rhythms and repeat in our realities. Notice which ones dominate our inside spaces and which ones dominate outside.

ASSIGNMENT for R: Use your pencil or colored pencils. Draw the shapes referred to as pure: triangle, circle, square, and rectangle. Vary the sizes from small to large. Place side by side, or inside each other. Overlapping and repeating to create rhythm and dominance. For practice do several as scribbles. Then choose the one that resembles a work of art. On a clean good piece of paper, if you want to use a light colored paper refine the textures. If you want add colors on top of the textures to layer as one does in oil painting.

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 R, 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.
