Dov's place, Monday 20th May 2013

I would like to start by thanking Dov for being such a good host, and for never failing to be  so inspiring and kind.
We had a full day of laughter and fun, and I would like to share with you some interesting exercises that we ( I) did.

First one, I was a bit bored with myself, so I started drawing the shadow of my own hand on the paper while drawing. It was great fun, after that I took some lines and I shaded them and this is what came out :

To make it more interesting, we drew Dov while doing tai chi. At first I was frustarted as he was constantly moving and could not get the lines, but then I decided to forget about that and just folow his moves with my pencil, and this is the result :

After that we started drawing together and I think this was the best exercise so far, never knowing what the other would do, ruining your "plans" all the time, having to improvise and just go with the flow, it was fantastic.

this one was done with Henrik and Hazem

And of course, lets not forget the amazing live music, I wish we could have this every time ( ps. sorry for the picture quality.

And so it starts...

For those who join us just now, here is the story thus far:
1. I got my kickstart drawing experience about 20 years back with the wonderful Shir Shvadron.
2. I created my drawing blog almost three years ago.
3. Trying to start giving back, I created a group (meetup) in Paris dedicated to free(*) drawing.
(*) free: means freeing the spirit, freeing the hand, taking it lightly, and free of charge. 

And thus begins the new chapter, which is this blog.
In the past group meetings, I enjoy seeing how people bloom and find their freedom, and I'd like to share it with you.

This blog is not mine, it belongs to the group, and all active members are invited to contribute to it.

Any group member may publish a post with her (or his:) drawings, paintings, creations, thoughts or whatever they wish.
And any reader is highly encouraged to send comments and insights to whatever he (or she:) sees.

As they say here in France, - Voila!

Just for a sample: here is a blog started by a dear dear member:
