/ reposting a photo of an old drawing to start off #lineonpaperseries :) lately I've been appreciating more of the simple works of pen on paper and how it brings complexity in conveying certain emotions, moods, and also the magic it brings in capturing a certain memory. So far, the stuff I've been doing has been quite experimental. I've been exploring different techniques in drawing/painting across canvas, paper, and digital platforms to convey meaning in my artwork. This is all because I'm still searching for my own distinctive style in the works that I create. I often look at great artists and admire how they have their very own unique way of expressing meaning in their artwork - whenever people look at their work, they can instantly tell whose it is. For example, everyone knows what a Vincent Van Gogh painting would look like, and I think I've kinda always wanted recognition like that for myself too. I'm definitely an ametuer with so much more to learn, but I feel like in order to do that I've got to know and at least be familar with the basic forms of drawing, so for the next few weeks/months(?) I'll be heavily focused on using simple pen-on-paper style (even though I'll probably still do some paintings as a hobby) and particularly working on figure drawings, contour drawings or anything really, that I can think of. This will honestly be quite a challenge for me, but we'll just have to see where this leads to hey?
