Repetitive movement to create recognizable flow.

Repeating movement can draw both the artist and the viewer into more structure resulting in a sense of stability.  Consistent patterns are comforting because one knows what will come next. This action is reliable and playful at the same time. Using the “z” stroke, as an example, can create an entire waterway with movement by simply repeating the strokes while layering them.
