I went to a lecture by a local artist this week, Sue Graham and she was talking about how we all progress and about how our styles develop and change. I am not sure I have a style yet but I feel more confident about my painting, I was inspired to pick up an old unfinished picture and rework it, making for another pleasing day pushing the paint around.
This week I have been messing with charcoal and water colour, sketching out another slightly surreal illustration for my strawberry tale, I think this is a little closer to the darker feeling of Jeremy Hush paintings and my starting inspiration.
Still working on our fables theme we are now creating lino cut prints as part of this project, yet another thing I have not done before and definitely something I am going to revisit.
So we started with our designs. I sketched a few ideas around the Strawberry fable then we made a lino cut, this week we made our first prints.
