Real and imagined, abstract. Compositional value studies in black and white. In some I start by putting down darks without anything in mind, just going for shape. In the end they are suggestive, nothing literal. Good excercises to warm up otherwise I sometimes find myself working too tight. By that I mean too tight in the hand and the line that comes from it. Loose and relaxed is better in ink even when the finish is precise and tight or exact in its execution.375,376,377,378,379
