Gartmore sits in beautiful , but a little run down , grounds. Great for wandering and foraging.
This piece of bark may become a book. Creative Fairy was working overtime.
I had decided instead of taking loads of supplies I would stick with black pencils, graphic stick, white gesso and sketchbook. ( See last weeks post. )
Out walking spotted this tree. Marking on the trunk matched some of my line marks.
Very freeing to stick to a limited pallet. I certainly had more room on my work space.
2nd day I needed colour.
A used teabag did the job.
Used hand wipes were pulled into the creative zone and I was back with texture and layers.
Great atmosphere, sharing experiences and expertise. Looking forward to next meetup.
Any Old Iron workshop. After I stressed the health and safety aspects everyone worked hard to achieve as many small rust samples as possible using vinegar and a variety of teas.
Wine and rust powder was used on the 2nd day. The mystery samples for everyone to unwrap at home.
Afternoon spent attaching 1st days samples and stitching on more metal to rust.
This was a very hard working group of people and they produced some super samples
Please look in next week to view what I am up to.
Lines are stewing away and a new body of work is on the horizon
