Continuing our mysterious doodly journey into the environment of sea and shore, we began with some imaginative doodles of the moon above the sea, inspired by some old poems.
Thinking about the sea creatures and kelp and coral, we also wrote a few words about it.
After developing our own individual pieces with Posca paint pens and Prockey water based markers, we cleared some space on the tables for two large rolls of paper to be spread out and worked on.
These were fun relaxing pieces, and we had a kind of musical chairs so we could shift around and everybody could work on different parts of the drawings and look for ways to collaborate with other folk’s markmaking.
Our aquatic shapes and creatures grew in the piece, moving and swaying with the sea current as we drew on. A shoal of fish passed near rocks on the sea bed, then swam through the translucent green kelp, and an octopus rested near a starfish.
It was great having the shell collection there to touch, smell and look at, and listen to as well, feeling the varied textures and listening to the strong sound of the sea. So refreshing!
