Expression in Lines

Recently, I have been exploring lines and the power of expression.  Here is a work I did recently in photoshop to explore the simple use of  lines in giving expression.  Looking between the lines is a thing of the past, so is colouring in the lines.  Once out of primary school you can start to have a bit of fun!  There are many good lines to use and I have looked for several examples of line drawings which I really liked. (see below for the line up).

Other works or next in line which incorporates lines and uses them effectively are: ArchRamiel’s image from flickr:

(See also Final Performance, which is similar to this work.)

Another effective line painting/ work is by  Magnus Blank. See his work iPhone painting #123

    Loving this tegan, it’s amazing how much the eyes can say. Great job capturing the emotion here.

    This is a link to that artist i told you about, Paul Summerfield on show at the God’s Cafe ANU – check it out, quite a fan of the prints – something new and interesting to see in each one every time you walk past.

    Enjoying the blog, much love Xx
