Morris Louis is famous for his 'pouring' technique, where he would pour layers of paint onto an unprimed canvas, allowing it to seep in. I was immediately drawn to his Alpha-Pi piece due my curiosity with the freely running, vivid coloured lines that fill the page. They reminded me a little of rain drops on the window of a car or train.

This piece called 1-81 features much more controlled lines.
