Have been sketching shell fossils in rocks which became the basis of this illustration.  Found this a slightly odd image!!  But then that is what it is all about...Day 1 - Journey - 21 May - image 2 - student project

 

Day 2:  Cloudwatching.

 Day 4: Shake it Up - three times.  Watercolour and wax crayon resist.  A photo-collage looked better than the individual attempts.

 Day 5:  Metamorphosis I

Decided to use oil pastels, not used for years.  I never much liked them, but thought I should have another go.

Day 7:  Crowd of Creatures

This lesson produced two images that must come from my deep inner psyche... A bit challenging to my idea of myself!

Day 8:  Colours and More Colours

I've used the paint on a page that was first used to press wet leaves; hence  the cockles.

Really like the combination of the indigo blue streak on the powdered pigment circle.  These are my own handmade paints from local rocks and raw indigo powder.

 

Day 9:  Flatten it out.  (Well, I tried...)

Day 11 Transform Me

One of my attempts for Day 4 - Wax crayon; graphite added, then washed.  For Day 11, I drew over with a pigment ink brush pen.  Lot happier with this now!
