This is a technique that I have been working in for about a year now. I decided that I really wanted to loosen up my drawings at certain times. Also the thought of using line not only as a single describing tool but as a part of a larger description of shape and form brought forth curiosity. I could push or pull the line and not feel so restricted by its perceived finality. This piece has made it to the finals in Artist's Magaine's 23rd annual Art Competition in the figure/portrait category.
