We tried an interesting new technique. Pulverize some charcoal until it's powder. We put charcoal sticks in plastic bags and then pounded them with a hammer. Poured some out on watercolor paper then poured or splashed some water on it. This then can be the basis of a painting.
This is what it looks like. This is Nina's. She sees a face and maybe a body.
Esther saw trees and hills- looks like the aftermath of the Fallbrook fire- This is the beginning of a neat painting.
Margaret added color to her charcoal--beautifully!
This is one of my charcoal blobs. What do you see in it?
I saw trees in my next blob, so started painting them. Mary said "where's the charcoal?" I had completely painted over it. She also saw several other problems. I'll keep working on it.
This also looks like the Fallbrook fire. I guess we just can't get it out of our minds.
Somehow I missed photographing Sue and Diane's paintings. Maybe they'll finish them and I'll photograph them next week.
