What is a Line Painting? (See Line Paintings Here)

    

My line paintings are painted using one continuous line with a beginning, and an ending. Although it changes colour, the line never touches, or crosses itself.

First, I draw the basic image, however, that is where the planning ends. The line takes shape, as I paint it, with no set path or direction.

Intellectually, the line is one of the most basic elements of art and is nearly impossible to escape as an artist. Fundamentally and spiritually, the line represents a certain connectedness - a thread that ties objects and individuals together. Water, trees, land and man-made structures are all linked together.

I create with line, not as contour, but as a full image, as miles of land, sea and sky are covered in a single stroke.
