By the Sea : Part One : white lines

By The Sea a commissioned drawing by Stella Untalan

Part One : white lines

My work is about process and materials, it is methodical , repetitious, and meditative.

I made a few timelapse videos and stitched them together on my iphone. It was fun and painless. This is part one. It's fun to look back on what happened when you make a piece. The timelapse makes it speedy but each line is drawn slowly.

I don't use a straight edge; the foam board you see was to keep me from getting body oils on the drawing. Paper towels became difficult to move and were taking too long to manage. I also made the movie to show the progress to the person who commissioned the work.

Completing the white lines took more than twelve hours.
