Ten New Drawings

I've just completed 10 new drawings. I've been working with the black drawing paper, colored pencils, and white ink for a while now. I've also continued to think about the intuitive process of creating these works. The compositions grow very organically out of themselves and each decision informs the next. So the result can be surprising and playful. I love the bright colored pencils contrasted with the black paper. The white ink lines and shapes add another layer that the colored pencils react to in some way. The process creates a set of rules and then breaks out of those constraints.
