Subverting the line

I am still working on painting number three (see Drawing into painting post for the two finished ones) and I like the way the drawing part has centralised into a sort of rolling horizon, rather like the first of the large drawings below. The lines feel as if they are tumbling over one another. I have also been developing the Cill Rialaig Wall sketches and combining them with memories of the walks that I did up to Bolus Head.

The painting is leading me further into investigating just the line which cuts across the centre of the space on a sheet of white paper. I like the idea of constantly subverting that line so that it is always moving, always fluid, a bit like the surface of the sea. The line is pulled and stretched constantly diverted from its apparent aim of slicing the space precisely into two halves.
