E-Portfolio #5- Directional Dominance


This project aimed to use varying thickness of lines in order to achieve the elements of design. My goal in this piece was to both achieve the elements of design as well as create a meaningful abstract piece. The tools used was Bristol paper, a thick sharpie, a PITT pen and a ruler. The focal point is clear in that it the eye is drawn to follow the lines towards the left portion of the piece. This is where the flow exists. Negative spaces aren’t explicitly present but they are used in a way that creates the figures seen in the center of the photo. I believe this piece succeeds because it uses the variance of lines in a unique way. However, it fails in that the piece creates too much of a clear image, and looks similar to a standard drawing.
