Spiral Line Drawings

The drawing obsession continues (of course it does!) but now things have shifted to longer lines flowing around a circular area. The first two drawings I completed are spiraled lines around a central point working towards a finished circle on an 8.5″ x 11″ piece of paper.

I am kind of amazed I can do these because I’ve often struggled in the past to maneuver a pen smoothly across the page. I think my hand has been made steady and skilled by working with a knife the past few years.

These are two of the five drawings done in the last week. I’ll share more in another blog post. I’m enjoying the process of these because they are being done for their own sake, and I’m happy with the final results.
