This weekend I attended a course about creativity and the subconscious. It was fun playing around with colours, using “the other hand” and finally trying to find a running thread in what we had created. One thing is pretty clear though, I will not make it as an artist but it was great fun.

“The other hand” is a very interesting concept. It is defined as the hand you do not use for writing. What happens is that what you paint or draw with your other hand is quite different from what you do with your “right” hand. Not only in quality (less practice with “the other hand”) but also in style.
