7. Project 1. Exercise 1: Experimenting with expressive lines and marks.

ANGER. Agitated, quick, sudden hard and explosive gestures. Nothing smooth or regular:


JOY. Elaborate, swirly movements. Decoration. Elaboration. Found charcoal to be the least useful:


SORROW. Dark, depressive, vertical, falling, drooping, weighted, tears:
