After some relaxing doodles of love hearts to celebrate the group being on Valentines day, with some joyful Ryokan poetry, we picked up the cityscape-cosmos theme again with some smaller doodles first then prepared for a large piece.
One of the group brought in an excellent book about the solar system which helped us to draw some planetary shapes and asteroids. And the combination of visuals with words in concrete poetry helped inspire us too.
We chatted about some ideas for a composition for the big joint piece on thick cartridge paper, which we cut to match the size of the tables. We painted with watercolours and used pens also and just had fun creating something together on a large scale (3 metres wide approx).
We worked on this in only 45 minutes before the end of the session, it amazed us how we could cover this size and not be short of ideas either. We encouraged each other, swapped places to freshen things up, and enjoyed the freedom of working with what felt like no boundaries.
