Barcodes and Barnett Newman

So, I've just finished working on our first homework..
It took me much more time than I thought it would! :) It was interesting. At first I was trying to play with variations of patterns of lines' density and intensity, but by the 5th row I ran out of patterns.. and also realized that there's another way to do this assignment. What if I placed my sheet of paper horizontally instead of vertically?..

I read a little about Barnett Newman, an abstract painter, who did paintings with vertical lines. I wonder what was going through his mind when he was working on them...was he really putting some kind of idea in them, or was he just trying to create something unusual that everybody could interpret in their own way?..

Personally, I was thinking of zebras and piano keys as I was working on this homework >>

My new blog for drawing class

Hello everybody!

Welcome to my drawing blog. It's my first semester at MCA and a first serious class of drawing, so I'm a little nervous about how it will go. But I'm much more excited than nervous. My main goal for this class to learn and apply new skills, get better at what I can and enjoy the process :)

I'll try to do my best..
