Line and Shape Combos
In the piece on top, I used a new-to-me technique, making simple paper stencils and masks and drawing inside the stencil shape or outside the mask. Those jagged white lines were made with gel pen around the outside edge of a mask. The squiggly gray squares were made with gel pen inside a square stencil.
In the second piece, I did more free hand work than I normally do. The fat squares were made with paint and watercolor brush, the messy black circles on the painted orange circles were made with pen. Actually, the orange circles were made using a paper stencil as well.
