Quick experiments bring with it a little uncertainty, randomness and well…they’re just quick to do.

The child is a 40 second, minimum-number-of-stroke drawing on tracing paper. The other drawing took about a minute. It’s a two-pen drawing of an unfinished paper basket weave. I did about 10 other quick drawings. Just random drawings of random objects, random people. Then, another two minutes to play around with a visual idea.

Two-pen drawing? Leonie Andrews describes this well in her blog post ‘Taking two lines for a walk‘. Try that too.

Have a good week everyone.
