Drawing As A Meditative Process

From the loose organic shaped line drawings I shared yesterday I went back to shaping the lines into circles. They feel like a succulent plant more than a flower. I’ve drawn four of these as of today, because I am obsessive when trying out an idea.

The top drawing with the close up photo beneath it was done with metallic gel pen. For the rest of the drawings I’ve been back to working with a white gel pen. I find the process of drawing these lines to be as meditative as paper cutting because it still has me working in repetition of the same lines and shapes.

These feel like finished pieces, and they may soon end up in a show that has unexpectedly come my way. Despite that, I’m still trying to play as much as possible when I’m in the studio.
