Black and White: first day of Paula’s workshop

Yesterday was the first day of Paula’s workshop. We began by making long scroll forms using brush and ink. Firstly we followed our breath, and then we used our gloved hands to work on the surface. iIt was a very direct and intimate way of making marks on the surface of the paper.
Here is my breath piece:

And here are some of our scrolls hanging together:

My scroll made by directly drawing on the paper with my hands is on the extreme right, next to the breath scroll.

Later we may add colour to this work, or cut it up for a book. We also made smaller pieces, exploring the variety of marks we could make.

This is a desert environment. Here are some photos of desert plants:
