Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
These two pieces are part of a series of line drawings I have been working on looking at form and the simplicity of lines within the human figure. Finding the beauty of the female form in just a few lines is something which I am drawn to time and time again. The composition for me was really important, as I wanted it to fill the page, drawing the eye to that specific section of the body rather than the body as a whole.
