I'm trying to figure out how to capture sensuality and a simplistic form. I think some form of pulling or wrapping or embrace of patterns is where I'm landing. I have a couple of my sketches here for your consideration. I think I like the more abstract vine around tree form than the almost literal tentacle around female form. It's more up to interpretation and doesn't necessarily limit the view of the piece to masculine on feminine. I think I might quickly paint both of them in order to see what they look like in color and make a decision after that.
