Getting Physical

16 Aug

I normally scribble on my own but today I was facilitating an art session and started off with a physical art exercise to warm us up. A lot of people don’t realise how physical art can be. I think that’s maybe because a lot of people do art as a hobby and perhaps don’t go so far into the technology or the physically demanding side of it.

I stuck a large sheet of paper from a roll onto a long table with masking tape and handed the other person a black chalky pastel. I had one too. Then we attacked the paper! No plans, no ideas, just scribble, jab, stipple, rub all over. After a few minutes it was covered in myriad shades and textures of black. Then we picked up white chalky pastels and did the same….. then some muted colours for a couple more layers. The results are fascinating, a bit like looking into infinity. Although it was just a warm-up exercise, these could be worked into collages or mixed media pieces.

A lot of my artwork is available on my Artfinder gallery.  If you’d like to have a look, please click on the image below or the Artfinder link at the top right of this page.
