I find that water is appearing in many of my scenes now, and I am still fascinated by working flat - without shadow. This drawing was a great way to learn about creating depth simply by placing one shape behind another.
Is this a drawing of downtown Portland, aka Bridgetown? Is this an art deco city? My memories of home in New York? Maybe, possibly, could be. Wherever this imagined city is, I am very pleased with the result.
I am learning that for me at least, my creativity is unleashed by NOT planning and predetermining what I am going to draw or paint. I regularly structure a project for myself - by choosing materials and a method, and then just let something appear and go with it.
Honestly, this has resulted in more than a few garbage liners, but, the more I let myself just draw and play, the more I discover unexpected faces and places and feelings. And the more I love lines.
This drawing is 9x12. Sharpies and markers on watercolor paper.
