Straight Lines, Week 1, Inktober 2020

Images

 
Awareness of the outside world.
Tis a gift to be simple, ’tis a gift to be free
‘Tis a gift to come down where I ought to be
And when I am in the place just right
I will be in the valley of love and delight

~~~
 

 
Exercise in drawing straight lines. What did I learn? My lines aren’t awful. Not custom car-painting straight, but not horrid. Horizontal easier than vertical or diagonal. Left-to-right/downwards is easier than right-to-left/upwards.

Inspired by Artistcoveries: As Straight as Humanly Possible.

  1. ‘Tis a gift to be simple, tis a gift to be free,
    Tis a gift to come down where you ought to be,
    and when you find yourself in the place just right
    You will be in the valley of love and delight

    When true simplicity is gained
    To bow and to bend we shant be ashamed
    to turn and to turn will be our delight
    And by turning turning we come round right.

    My dad used to sing this all the time. He had a good singing voice.
