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.
Went to Wells next the Sea [Norfolk] for nearly a week. Came back a day early worried about getting snowed in and because I pulled muscle in my poor elderly back, Bend Zee Knees when attempting to pick up your bag.
Callie had a wonderful time, by the end she sparkled like a diamond with all her healthy walks [and splunges into the waters] Geese laughed loudly and continuously.
