exploration in gray

This little drawing was done one day in drawing class when I just needed a little diversionary break. I grabbed a scrap of bristol paper (7×11) and an assortment of warm grays (Prismacolor) and just started doing some cross-hatching, with no plan in mind. It created itself into this little sand dune / ocean sort of landscape. I like the texture of the cross-hatching and the illusion of distance created by the use of space and the flow of the lines. The drawing process of drawing this was very calming, and I like the feeling of serenity it evokes.
