Grid Process

My whole process for making dot art started as an explanation of "value" to some elementary students. In each triangle of a grid I used line and dots to generate areas of various lights and darks. Going a step further I played with color pencil using the same grid format. From there I decided to paint with acrylics on canvas again working with a triangle grid. However, I was bored with the result. It was then I decided I to add dots to give my painting some life.
