For this piece I Decided to work with multiple pieces of paper.
Step 1.) I used tacks to hold 8 pieces of Arches Cover White 250 GSM paper up to the wall in my studio. Together they are 60″ tall x 88″ wide.
Step 2.) Without thinking too much about composition or placement and focusing more on line I started my first marks at the focal point on the golden mean, 1/3 from the top and 1/3 from the left. I continue drawing line upon line building up a network of line, all the while not knowing where the line would take me.
Step 3.) Continuing the process using mechanical pencil for fine lines.
Step 4.) I needed darker darks, so I used a stick of Conte which is great for developing a variety of line width and value. Also I was feeling like the lines so far had been too whimsical. The lines were so flowing and light hearted because I had been listening to upbeat jazz for the last 4 hours of drawing. To break this up, I introduced perfectly strait lines to literally break the whimsical lines.
And here is a detail shot of its current condition from below right.
