They say that if you move out of your comfort zone you might just make something wonderful happen.
We should all try it occasionally.
I’ve embarked on a 48 week course of mixed media exploration. More here.
So far I’ve completed four weeks and I AM LOVING it! It’s quite an investment, but I am SO glad I pressed that “buy” button.
Week 1 involved an image transfer, working with stencils and “joint filler” (finding the equivalent in the UK is proving to be a challenge) and inks.
Week 2 was pop out vibrant! I never follow the tutor exactly, never have. So I have paisleys instead of daisies.
Week 3. My favourite so far. LOVE it.
Week 4 I decided to draw a swallow rather than a figure.
As a child I used to watch thousands of swallows come to roost in the trees, I can still remember standing out in the garden with my dad.
Some close ups for you.
