In the last of our four weeks looking at Autumn colours and mark-making techniques, I gave everyone the same colour palette to experiment with using rather more muted tones than in the previous sessions.

I was quite specific about the 'application' of the colour but other than that the discovery process was all theirs.

We came up with some very diverse results. This is a useful way to explore colour and create a reference for future work.

I then gave everyone a five-minute 'mark-making' challenge using the same palette.

The point of this was to encourage spontaneity not to mention have some fun!

Here are a few results.
