Have been experimenting with some hand stitching on my rust cloth.   Hoping to frame a  set of four.
Have also been messing around with off cuts from the River sketch book, taking some thoughts from the Blessed Alice I rollered some black ink here and there and ended up with some quite attractive textures.  What to do with them is another question.............tea dyed some linen for a background, but feel it needs some more work to integrate everything. Would be nice to frame each strip individually but not sure I have the confidence.
And have started work on the Sketch books for next term.  I hope to take the Nude as my theme, and paint on HUGE canvases...........and make clay figures of Nudes already painted.  The Lucian Freud and Alice Neel come to mind.  It's a Plan.  I would add pics but Blogsite seems to have changed yet again and I refuse to read instructions.  Life is restricted enough.
