I’m presenting for my Public Speaking class tomorrow and realize that for the first time I’ve got a time-lapse image or two available to show the process. Of course, this is done with a bigger tip in order to make it more visible. I usually work with Ultra Fine tips. And baby, they are ULTRA fine…
The image previous shows how 7 dots create an arc and then another 7 dots create another arc. This is how a tree begins (depending on the artist!). This took about 10 seconds.
And the dots grow . . .
And now we have added less than a minute of work. It’s amazing how much is accomplished in such a small slice of time.
So, the tree fills itself up, up, up . . .
The previous shows lapsed time of 3 minutes. It is, more specifically, the result of two additional minutes of dotting.
And finally (but it’s not final) . . .
The last image is the result of an additional 5 minutes bringing it to less than 10 minutes of effort. Think of how this looks after 45 minutes. It’s not as complicated as it appears to be. The artist just must hold to a vision and watch it unfold. Or, the artist allows the image to unfold her inner world, to inform her as it draws her out, telling her what is next only as she points her way along. That is the most accurate description of this particular dotty artist.
And this is a glimpse of the presentation I’m giving on Monday. Now, to disperse myself across the canvas of the day…
