The act of drawing individual lines, building up an image by layering and intersecting, gradually loses mathematical and logical precision as each line is subject to minute variations. These variations have an aesthetic quality where each line becomes more descriptive and harmonic. When the lines are grouped together the systematic relationship is replaced by a more active one of both tension and relaxation.
