I really enjoyed this episode of The Big Painting Challenge.
One of the mentors had an interesting exercise to get his students to loosen up. Large canvass on the deck and draw with a MOP dipped in a bucket of paint. In the landscape episode the contestants loosened up by drawing at arms length holding a bamboo stick with charcoal on the end. The aim, to stop using the brush as a pencil.
