This is just the beginning of the piece. At lesson 23, the year’s work is nearly done. It’s been brilliant! Year of the Spark has followed Year of the Fairy Tale – both with Carla Sonheim. This year Lynn Whipple has provided half the lessons. Super mix of talents.
I kid myself it now looks a teeny weeny bit like an Egyptian tomb wall – I shall call the bathing belle Nefertiti.
Experimental painting: blind contour drawing of a man’s face done with monotype and then mounted on a textured background. Couldn’t think of anything to do next so in the ‘look at later’ pile! Image 8×10 inches (20×25.5 cm)
One of those splodges of paint which suddenly turned into a recognisable bird! I couldn’t bear to add to it in case the grebe disappeared again. Image 8×10 inches (20×25.5 cm). Just another for the drawer…
One of a recent series of figures outlined with heavy black. I love the way the bright colours look like traditional stained glass. I remember dancing to this song way back… Didn’t want to offend with the real title!
Do visit and see my pictures on tote bags – I am thrilled with the look of them. You can adjust the placement of the artwork, or make it smaller – just click the one you like to see the possibilities. (Copyright line on this example won’t be on the bag!)
A new addition to my monoprint portraits. This woman was on a multi-coloured collaged background but that had been painted out so the orange is set starkly against the light blue. Mixed media work with collage. Image size about 8×10 inches (20×25.5 cm).
