Turning a Mountain into a Line

A few weeks ago I told you about my new drawing project and Sunday plan. After my first Sunday, when I drew single lines, I started layering the lines on top of each other, sometimes combining two, sometimes using more. I find it helpful to focus on one form of manipulation, like layering, which keeps me on task and keeps me from feeling overwhelmed by choices. I'm not sure what I'll do this Sunday, but I'm thinking about working more with layering lines on separate pieces of paper. There is something really beautiful in the translucency of the material and the varying intensity of the pencil marks.

Thanks for reading.
