A drawing I did

I completed one of my drawing assignments for RISD yesterday. The task was to take a piece of paper, manipulate it in any way and make a drawing of it. I chose to twist pieces of torn paper and knot them together. The folds created are visually and conceptually fascinating to me, reminding me of sinews of muscle or barbed wire. I feel that the effect of tension is created both in the subject and composition. I also blended realistic and slightly graphic styles for interest and to highlight the quality of the folds, creases and twists.
Now I have two more drawings to go.
