We had lots of time in waiting rooms last week so I worked on another Automatic Drawing with my trusty Sharpie markers. I started by drawing lines and curves randomly. Then I drew spirals and curls but in a controlled way. I’ve learned that working in a totally automatic mode I do not get a well balanced work when I color it in. I tried to make sure that I had a balanced “weight” of line within each quadrant of the drawing. I am also learning to be a little more systematic and thoughtful during the coloring process. For the first time I had shapes that I changed after applying the first layer of color. You can do this if you go darker. Anyway, with this drawing, I entertained myself over three days of waiting. Yes! No perfect but FUN…
