Life is a little too busy right now, so time to reflect and write about my three chosen textiles is a very slow process. So whatever energy is left late at night after a long working day is used for mark making and testing various media.
I love pastels, especially soft pastels, love the intensity of pigment and the versatility, so here is few examples of mark making, both with inspiration from forms but also looking at line and colour.
This set was done on ordinary white drawing paper torn out of a pad. Quick sketches to also look at composition.
Unison pastels on Japan paper – tentative mark making, what kind of colours are these?
Colour and layers…
And finally my french tea cup in free style 🙂
