Untitled 2018, watercolor and pen on paper, 11” x 14”
For this piece I focused a lot on line work. I free-handed the hatching and used only hatching in the background to focus on creating different values with line proximity. For the clothes of the people, I did do some cross-hatching. I also used watercolor for the hills in the back because I wanted to show the separation between nature and man-made with the contrast. Like nature, the watercolor is smoother and more organic. The pen and ink contrast this by being more rigid and structured, similar to how man-made structures are. Through this contrast, I wanted to show how man-made structures and industry are intruding into nature.
