The sketches below will eventually become my dot paintings. From my list of ideas, I generate simple thumbnail ink drawings on Post-it Notes. Sometimes I do several drawings for one idea. Much depends on whether I’m satisfied with the first drawing. Many of these were the first drawings.
Red, yellow and blue are a little limiting for colors, but I make more decisions during the underpainting stage.
Of course the final piece sometimes changes from my drawing. This is not a commitment in stone.
