As part of my paintings, I began by creating a quick sketch, which I personally felt would help me when it came to making movements with my paintbrush. I really like the concept of a continuous line drawing, as it helps me to think more about the look of a portrait on a larger scale rather than just focusing on one, single area.
Furthermore, I had been recently looking at some aesthetically -pleasing drawings, as you can see below. As you can see, they all have an individual quality to them and they remind me of a particular wire sculpture, which I created at the start of FAD, and that made me want to try and sketch something inspired by all of these different components of research.
When I compare my drawing to the pieces above, I feel that mine holds a different kind of complexity to it, as some of the lines do not join up and are simply left unjoined.
