I have been intrigued by the recent posts that discuss automatic drawing. Leslie’s post is here. Take a look, it is fascinating. Chris Carter has also written several posts about squiggle drawing and this is mentioned in Leslie’s post. This looks like fun to me so I tried it last Thursday when Ken and I were at the Cancer Center for his latest chemotherapy treatment. I’m not showing my first drawing – it looks like a demented skull – but I will show my second.

I started with the ball in the lower left and as you can see I had trouble getting off it. Just spun round and round. When I did, I had fun and a vision of two ladies sitting on a park bench talking emerged. Do you see them? Fun, relaxing, destressing. Thank you Chris and Leslie!

    Leslie is so good at making us do basic art techniques that we should never forget. She is like a teacher I never had reminding me to do my homework! I love your second drawing, I probably would like the first one too. Glad to see art moving around. Happy Fall!

      I have learned soooo much from all the artists that blog but Leslie is particularly generous with her experiences andf learnings.

    This is so cool that you tried this, Linda! Yes. I can surely see the two women. I studied the drawing before reading your post and saw them as two figures dancing. It was a joyous dance. I decided the dark circling was just the dancers getting their feet under them to begin their dance. 🙂 The white paper is the most frightening I think. …and I like it that you found this exercise to be de-stressing. Thank you for sharing this furthur! Excellent drawing, by the way!

      I enjoyed this because I had no preconceived subject. I just worked on what evolved from my doddling. Really takes the pressure off.
