Nowadays I sit in the evening, resting my heels, working in my sketchbook and on small pieces - that I create in pairs.
This is the most enjoyable way to spend time.
Here are some of the 'pairs' I have worked on over the last week or so:
Actually, I have realised that - although not so good for my waistline - an enforced period of rest does mean that the pressure's off.
Thus; composition through 'playing' and 'dreaming' in an A3 sketchbook is productive - for the mind, the body and the well-being:
Here's a thing.
I spent an evening with my aching Achilles elevated, cutting up pages from a magazine or two.
I simply cut fairly random shapes - mostly dictated by the shapes colour and texture on the pages.
Next I created a backdrop in the form of a not quite plain white piece of A3 paper.
Hey ho - then I played...and snapped, with my phone, as I arrived at different potential solutions for composition and layout.
Interesting how the shapes fit together to become something recognisable - or not - and how they suggest what they might be, when alone or joined with one another.
Anyway - here they are:
The dilemma - I only have one set of shapey-shapes - what to do?...
