365 Days of Art – Playing with Lines and Tools

….Days 169 and 170

I’m taking a new course through Carla Sonheim called Translating Landscapes. Our instructor is Anita Lehmann and her first lesson is all about mark making, experimenting with different tools and mediums (ink, pastels, charcoal, pencil) and responding to music. She encourages us to be messy, free and loose. It’s a lot of fun.

Here are my studies of lines using a variety of tools and inks and charcoals.fullsizeoutput-7519

When I turned on the music I also used pressed pastels and walnut ink along with the black ink, charcoal and pencil.
