I found this continuous line painter. The work that I’ve shown is on a huge scale compared to this. What I like about the image is that the white is the continuous line so he has worked with the negative space and filled that in.

It is a very backwards way of doing the process and I would like to try and achieve the same sort of effect using photoshop. Although I don’t work with paints, I could use background images instead.

I wanted to have a god at using the negative space like he has done and so I had a go. Instead of marking out where the line was and painting around it, I used an image I had already taken. I opened it on photoshop and used the rubber tool to paint on top of it in continuous line.

Trees

 

I absolutely love this, it looks a lot better than I was expecting.I think the two trees in particular look really odd and interesting. I can’t work out what it is that I like about it, it may just be that it is pretty unique, although I did realise that it reminds me of Disclosure album covers…

However, I’ve not seen them draw on trees so I might carry on with this route a see where it takes me. I’d like to try this on a view of a city or somewhere else that is filled with pattern so I can really make it quite rough and fresh.

  1. Hi Lucy,
    Glad to have inspired your work! Let me give you a little insight into my process.
    The white line is simply the unpainted canvas. The continuous line is the painted line – or colored surface. This painted, colorful line is a single, unbroken line, with a beginning and an end that never touches or crosses itself. See here: http://geoffslater.com/linepainting.shtml
    I like what you are doing with the white line in Photoshop!

      You make very beautiful work and I’m glad I found it because it gave me a whole new perspective on how to produce these sorts of images that make it look new and interesting.
      Thank you for taking the time to comment!
