I only had a few weeks left at my summer studio so I have been working day and night to explore my theme relating to interlacing lines over a landscape. It has definitely been a struggle being consistent from one painting to the next painting. For example, I painted a water reflection scene and loved the final work. I did not want to destroy it with interlaced lines. The waterscape could become another series, I thought. On the other hand, I know that I needed to be consistent and persistent with the interlaced direction so I added my lines over the surface. This painting was a struggle and I just kept at it. My work tends to become busy with too much decoration so my goal was to simplify the elements, Just use one color for the lines with its tones and values. I include the underneath painting and the final work.
