For many months now I have been mentally grappling with several art related issues, one of which is how to combine the drawn line with my cut shapes. I want to relate the solution to what I already do naturally (with my sketching) rather than seeing what someone else does and following their lead. Doing what I know and building on what I am learning is important to me. Plus, the whole thing has to look like me and fit my personality. I will be trying some things this week and if they go well I will show them. I have another idea too given to me by my friend, Julie. She suggested cropping some of my work to help get out of old habits and to get on to new ways of seeing what you are doing. I have some cropped compositions from my work and will be trying out her suggestion. Thank you Julie, I think you pried me out of my self imposed wedge!
Hope everyone is having a good weekend. Thanks for reading and commenting.
