I stumbled upon this challenge from Nadine Adele, a mutual of mine from Twitter and I was wondering, why not? I mean, art is art, creativity comes in many forms. So I spend some time today during my lunch hour break to accept the first day challenge, LINE!
What is a Line?
A mark or stroke long in proportion to its breadth, made with a pen, pencil, tool etc. on a surface.
Line is probably one of the most important parts of an artwork. Imagine creating a drawing, painting, sculpture, letter, poem, design, chart or table without drawing lines to divide the surface into shapes and forms – it’s near impossible to imagine lines anywhere hence why it’s an important part of near enough everything! Lines can express feelings and emotions.
Types of lines: zigzag, curved, spiral, thick, thin, diagonal, curly, vertical, horizontal!
So the challenge is:
o Pick 3 songs; your favourite song, a song you like the least and a song that makes you want to dance. All three songs need to total up to 10 minutes (if you have the time to go longer, then go for it!) and is best to listen to through headphones!
o Using a pen (or any mark making tool of your choice) and paper, hold the pen in the middle of the page.
o Press play, close your eyes and move your pen with the music. DON’T look at the page – just let the pen flow.
o Once the first song is done, grab another sheet of paper and repeat step 2 and 3 with the next 2 songs.
o If you want to make things even more interesting, you can use just 1 sheet of paper for all three songs, change colours for each song or change materials – it’s entirely up to you!
Here comes my thoughtful lines of art LOL
From my favourite song (currently): LOYALTY - Kendrick Lamar ft. Rihanna (04:00)
This was my mind when I was listening to All About That Bass from Meghan Trainor (03:10)
Song that makes me dance: De Ra Go from Jill (02:50)
I'm so excited to know what is going to happen tomorrow, but I feel glad I got to scribble my thoughts in a way that I didn't expect!
