BBC ‘Your Paintings’ Enchanted Forest at Towner

Giraffe in the Silver Woods

Lots of children, parents, Towner staff, volunteers and I made this yesterday as part of the BBC ‘Your Paintings’ Project.
It was made in response to the murky and mysterious Christopher Le Brun painting ‘February 1982’  on show at Towner in Eastbourne. Apparently Le Brun made  the painting through intuitively working from a random mark. In a similar way children began from a randomly shaped and painted piece of cardboard and worked with what the shapes suggested to them.Our enchanted forest will be on show at Towner  until next Friday. Please come and see if you can.
Photos of everyone’s work below – participants are very very welcome to download and print out photos of their work. Thanks to everyone who helped and made this beautiful installation.

    Very atmospheric! Fantastic 3d creatures and magical horses. I like the neon green too – like Kelly Richardson’s glowing deer. Well done everyone!
