Getting Physical

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.

    It looks gorgeous. For some reason it is hard to do that sort of thing at home. I must try it

      It’s easier, I think, with someone else joining in because it gathers it’s own momentum and you can’t get too precious about it.
