Old marks, new marks, drawing on dark paper

drawing, ink, rhythm, works on paper, ink on paper

I pulled out another drawing I had started months ago. I had been confused about where to go after having drawn different tonal rhythms on a sheet of rag paper. The paper is dark grey and I was using acrylic inks that are very saturated. I had also used transparent matte gesso and sanded the surface.

Adding the next layer of marks would have to hold the tonal areas together. I decided to test the preious thread-like marks I had made previously on another small drawing. 

Now to be patient and see what it asks for next.
