Line Paintings: A First Attempt

It’s been nearly 3 years now that I’ve been playing around with pens and markers, exploring intuitively and leaving my more rigorous studies for pencil drawing and painting. Though I don’t really know why, I recently started doing a few
sketches with acrylic paints. Without expectation or example, I let myself do whatever I felt like, leading exploration be my motivation without care for the end result. It turns out that I quite like the end result. Here are a few photos of the process.
