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.
