This is my interpretation of the towel close up. A fine grid centered with a loop. In order to create tone I have not included the loops in all boxes. I got to this by thinking about the multiple small lines in the work of Alex Chambers, but along the way I remembered John Franzen and I know this influenced the grid. He creates wonderful drawings made up of multiple vertical lines, each one feeding of the imperfections of the line before. It’s like a meditative process by which he imbues his drawings with his feelings and emotions, as well as bigger concepts related to the cosmos and infinity.
I’m just doing thumbnails to start with, to see what works and then I’ll move on to bigger works. My small drawing looks clunky, but I wonder how it would look on a much bigger scale. Other things to consider are that although the paper is light it is not white. I think that the bright towel would be better reflected with a clean white background.
