I strive to capture the essence of the subject thru mastery of lines. The beauty of line lies within their simplicity and razor-sharp clarity. Smooth flowing lines create fluid motion. Freehand-brush strokes give the impression of movement resulting in expression of energy. An essential skill to achieve this is learning to draw from the shoulder (sometimes even the whole body “Tai Chi”), rather than the wrist. The shoulder allows you to create elegant and smooth curved lines. The wrist can then capture the smallest details making every piece finished and unique, almost like a signature.
