i like this one...i see colours like, browns, coppers, and dark golden yellows...and yet, it reminds me of an inuit person with a big round furry hood on a big coat....funny how that works

Thank you so much Vanessa for taking a look at my lines. :-) You have made me smile quite a lot at how these few lines activated your imagination in such a way. Omg, now I am seeing what you saw! :-) BUt I see a Colombian Peasant rather than a Canadian Inuit. Muchas gracias. :-)

Thank you Oceanpeace. :-) If you ever saw a peasant from the Andean region you would see that these few lines somehow portray their plight as faceless citizens in a violent society.

I have done many colorized drawings which I have not posted. And yet in the years 2001-2002 I did many linear drawings which had no colors at all, but instead were made out of simple lines. They are a group of about 100. I think the options are either to colorize them as I did in my painting "Coupling" which arose out of simple lines, [link] or enlarge them but retaining the value of lines as lines. For the value of lines for me please read my journal entitled "Lines and beauty" [link] . Perhaps it might give you some idea about these linear drawings. Thanks for you question! Hope to see more of your beautiful photos. :-)
