Two days of hard work to tie up all the loose ends of this semesters college work. I only hope it all makes sense. I tried fitting imges on a word document, they came out tiny on the PDF. I tried using PowerPoint, it played up, and the images are huge! Ah well, computers are not my speciality.
At least now I can think about life outside of college for a couple of weeks till the start of the next semester. I can try and catch up with life.
I’m doing a painting on line, live, next week. I offered to do it for our mystery plays virtual performance next week. Its only going to have a small audience because we can’t have a big group on zoom. I’ve been watching Bob Ross programmes and I’ve always done paintings quickly but I think I’ve bit off more than I can chew!
Anyway I’m going to have just over an hour to get this finished, and better still they want me to start from scratch and if it’s OK they will raffle it off… Wish me luck!
Fish from a batik workshop I was part of a couple of years ago. It was with an artist called Belinda Latimer. She moved away or I would have liked to do another one. The pictures round the side are by other people in the workshop. It’s great to let yourself do something new if you can.
Cat I drew at the start of march. I used an ink roller that you can blot out addresses with. I would have done more of these but the cat decided to play with the roller and I think it’s been knocked under a cupboard. I will have to try and find it. Sometimes the simplest experiments work well.
I noticed the letters on the roller are Greek, I don’t know why? If you tip it on one side you can achieve thin lines and also get some curves.
A giant, a genie and a fairy, (thus coukd be a joke). Pencil crayon drawings cut out to add to a collage I did for college. It came out quite well. I don’t have a decent photo of it so I can’t show you. It’s fun though coming up with characters and images from my imagination.
Five portraits, one five minutes and the other four are ten minute ones. Black calligraphy pen on cartridge paper. The lighting isn’t good so the paper looks a bit grey. People provided objects to add to the portraits. I really enjoy these sessions.
