Rachel and I have been experimenting with different drawing techniques since she was taught how to sketch in art class. This week, by accident more than anything, we realised that you can sketch with dots.
Dotty drawing was discovered.
It's been a revelation to me; I've never got to grips with sketching, but dots are much less threatening somehow.
I started just doodling and seeing where it took me. As I looked at my doodles, shapes started appearing.
This was one of the more amazing discoveries. I stunned myself.
Rachel was inspired to give it a go; and her dandelions came out fantastically.
From there the world was our oyster with city scapes
Rachel's fantastic carrots
And my tree - it's our cherry tree
I can't believe how simple and effective dotty drawing is, I challenge everyone to have a go; young or old.
