The fourth session was
an attempt to throw positive 'conflict' into the process of painting.
Paper, 4m in length, was laid out and the group invited to turn-take
in mark making for twenty minutes. Palettes with restricted colours
were positioned at opposite ends, and the artists journeyed, often in
pairs, towards the centre of the paper, their brushes sometimes colliding,
by-passing or purposefully avoiding the other. The second work was produced
using more varied palettes of colour, the group working as a unit, but
actively encouraged to paint 'on-the-move' whilst journeying around
the artwork. The resultant pieces were laid out side-by-side and compared.
