When a Drawing Gets Tight with No Way Out

By Abstractartbylt @artbylt

After my free and crazy drawing yesterday, the law and order muse came back today.  This abstract drawing has some elements I like, such as the strong black lines that set up a central stucture.  I also like the thin textural black lines I made with my Koh-i-noor fine point pen.  But for some reason I felt compelled to "outline" the central image with the dark purple.  Sometimes that kind of outlining works, but I find it too constricting in this one.
