This week I explored lines in the most basic way – by that I mean singular lines that do not intersect each other. Instead I wanted to look at curved lines to suggest shape and form. I’ve looked at this in many ways across the drawing and enjoyed some of the effects it’s created. I’m still working out which shapes and patterns to keep and which to start moving away from.
From a mindfulness point of view, I’m really enjoying this project and have found it to be very therapeutic. It’s a brilliant way of getting absorbed in something which you can pick up and put down at any time. I’m aiming to create a double page spread slowly over each week. I’d suggest that anyone exploring mindfulness should give this technique a try or for the less confident, colouring books would allow you to achieve the same state of calm.
