We were a mixed group, of varying experience, but everyone was open-minded and prepared for the challenge.
Our first task was to prepare several sheets of paper with:
1. A simple colourful painting, either realist or abstract,
2. A black and white pattern, either repetitive or random, and
3. (Opt) A plain background of your own colour choice.

Once dry (it took a while as it was hot and very humid) these sheets were to be torn up and re-arranged into a totally new image.

The first pieces produced were all in a linear format.

Soon some began adding other elements...
.. and I never was one to follow the rules...

It was two days of dedicated creative play, with some amazing results, and well worth doing.
