Experimenting with expressive lines and marks

 

‘Calm’. I didn’t want to make any sharp marks or fine lines.

The top left swirls were so satisfying to create, I would like to experiment more as to how I can create that curl, almost like chocolate shavings.

For the circles I gently smudged everyone with my finger creating a different image with each one.

 

 

The following two are examples of ‘anger’.

 

Drawing using graphite and pencil I found far more effective in order to express my mood as I could make hard and strong lines.

The examples below are of ‘depression’ I was trying to express a flat line of emotion in a haze of confusion in one and a sense of slowly spiralling towards darkness in the other. One was pastel the other charcoal ..which somehow ‘felt’ right.
