Line quality is the essential element of two-dimensional art. Integrating the act of drawing with that of painting is paramount to the creative process. The specific architectural grid of line networks is the basis for paintings on canvas, paper and wood. The images on these substrates are evolved through a meticulous process of repeatedly applying strata to develop the image. The effects of mixed media – pastel, pencil, charcoal, ink and acrylic – is scrutinized individually and collectively during the image’s evolution.
