Surreal Scribbles

18 Aug

Husb and I were just listening to the BBC4 concert of music by Ravi Shankar and Phillip Glass, with the awesome Anoushka Shankar playing. It was sublime. I decided to do a bit of automatic drawing,  which the Surrealists did a lot of. I uploaded a photo of a pastel multilayered scribble that I worked on a couple of days ago into the Markers app on my Samsung Galaxy Tablet Note 8. Then I started scribbling along with the music, randomly,  without trying to make the marks look like anything in particular.  I rarely draw from my imagination,  I draw from life, so it’s good for me to let go and give myself a bit of freedom.

    This is beautiful – I can see music in it, but it could have so many interpretations.

    Hi Rosie, myself I have often doodled to music I find it fascinating what turns ot the end of the music while the end result on paper seems so Atherial usually. Thanks for sharing yor imagination with us. regards Diane.
