A Little Tango Step - original oil figurative painting

This painting is 7 x 5" on Gessobord and I was pleased with it because I thought it fairly painterly.  I always think of myself as a 'line' person, so painting is actually a second language for me.  Does anyone else feel they are either a 'line' or a 'shape' person?  When I heard first heard that idea, it made perfect sense to me.  What do y'all think?  Line or shape?  Anyone out there who's both?
Thank you for visiting Hackberry Street Studio - I am delighted when you drop by!

The line/shape thing! that's something to think about.
It's almost like two separate ways of seeing! I try to use both. Lately I'll put a line study on one side of the canvas and value study on the other.

I like that, Steve - both the line and the value studies on the same canvas. Thank you - I'll try that!
