Dots and lines: How to create amazing drawings with simple shapes

Drawing with dots and lines is a simple but effective way to learn how to draw. Drawing is the basis for attentive, detailed observation. When drawing, there are two basic elements we can use: dots and lines. Dots are the smallest and most inconspicuous element of any drawing. A line is the visible trace of a movement and is nothing more than many dots all joined together. Lines can be endless – they can be crooked or straight. We call short lines dashes. When drawing dots and lines, surfaces, contours, spatial illusions, contrasting shades, hatching, and structures can appear as if by magic. Not every line is also a drawing – drawings should convey something. Such pictures don’t necessarily have to be concrete, they can also be abstract, non- representational interpretations of the real world.

In these worksheets it’s not so much about the content of the picture but rather the ‘how to’. Concentration and practice are what’s required here. With simple lines you can start drawing without being ‘able’ to draw. The results you’ll get can be surprising. The strongly three-dimensional line patterns in these worksheets are reminiscent of the forces of nature that shape our world: Waves, currents, wood grain, webs, and crystals...
