Life Drawing

I spent a wonderful morning at Knodishall again, with another brilliant model. And to further gild the lily, a fellow artist liked it so much he bought it! Thank you Felicity.

Gelatin Plate Printing

I watched videos of gelli plate printing on YouTube 
and got excited. I can do that, just what I am looking for, to sell in a local gift shop.
This was my first effort, where I discovered that my acrylics don't cut the mustard.....too thick. I realised I need to go shopping. But first, some more experiments.

Snow in the Mountains
Thinner paint produced a better result, but I feel it shouldn't have been so difficult! Alice made it look so easy.

House on the Moor
Looking like something now, and I'm loving all that texture.

Can't wait to go shopping to get the right materials and really get going! Fabulous inspiration in my new surroundings.........
