After last time at Maryhiill Art Group where we worked individually drawing from leaves and autumn shapes, this time we went straight on to a large piece together. About four metres wide, it was looking like quite a challenge to work in just over an hour with any pre planned composition. No pressure!


We quickly got going though with some autumn leafy shapes and textures before adding more whimsical shapes, earthy textures, and dreamy sky blue spaces. Not worrying about the outcome, we experimented with different colours of pens and tried to bring the interspersed shapes together. We chatted also about which areas were not quite working, and found some creative spontaneous solutions 🙂

After some effort we managed to put the long mural like abstract autumnal vista on the wall so we could stand back and enjoy our night’s artwork together.
