So what I try to do is paint a background before we go, and then take a limited supply of materials and challenge myself to do something just using those. Himself takes a pencil, a sketchbook and a rubber eraser, and he's good to go. My supplies always seem to need a shopping bag, even if I am trying to simplify.
So below was where I began - just using one of the circular shapes in the background to write in, and trying to express something of my amazement at what happens when I just "go with the flow" and allow something to happen.
And for some reason having worked in curved shapes I suddenly went all spiky and drew these jagged shapes, which somehow for me express the POWER that seems to move me when I'm working.
We aren't going to that group any more. Turns out neither of us liked it much and only went for the sake of the other, but neither of us wanted to say so and spoil it for the other! Once we had confessed, and since the timing was difficult for me, we've given it up. In one way its a shame because it was nice to do something arty together. Now if only the trusty wheelchair could navigate the gorgeous sand dunes just a couple of blocks from home, I could sit and make (sandy) pages while he happily sketched. Alas, wheelchairs don't like sand or gravel, or a host of other surfaces .... :(
