I first chose painting outside with water as it’s an activity I’ve done a few times before with my sons. Looking at the video of myself doing it it’s a funny mix of being playful and trying to take it half-seriously as the first exercise I’m undertaking for my course. I enjoyed just drawing whatever came to mind, and didn’t spend much time thinking at all.
Secondly, I chose to make a temporary picture with sticks and leaves. Again, it was enjoyable to not think too deeply about what I was doing and just place the leaves arbitrarily and freely.
I hope to continue using some of this freeness of thought throughout the course.
