Part Two: Developing, Discovering and Working Into a Grid
1. Begin this second version by doing some automatic drawing. Activate your drawing surface with lots of lines and marks, lots of energy without thinking, worrying or planning.
2. Take some time to contemplate the drawing you've produced. Sense it, feel it. Look for places and movements that suggest horizontals and/or verticals. Lightly, with your drawing medium, mark some indications of a few of these.
3. Continue sensing and responding to these newly forming connections. And remember: you have the option of erasing or covering some of the automatic drawing to establish the grid more forcefully.
4. Continue the process of alternately establishing the grid and taking some away, sensing and intuitively assessing the drawing as you go. Keep things moving until you reach a satisfying conclusion with the grid acting as the organizing structure.
Please upload and share your drawings in the community, and, as always, comment on a classmate's drawing whenever you upload one of your own
