I haven't posted about this wonderful course at Graphicus in Barnard Castle until today. The tutor was the very gifted Glenda Waterworth, and it was every Thursday in April. I really enjoyed it, and my fellow students were great! The travelling was tiring though it was through some of the most beautiful countryside - Rossendale, Ribble valley, North Yorks, Teesdale etc - gorgeous, particularly when the sun shines. I have some photos but they are on my phone and at present I can't get my phone pics to upload!
Anyway, here is a photo (camera) of a piece of work I did on the course - it's Mixed Media of course, it includes various techniques like data transfer, and various media like gels and metallic paints. the subject matter is about an artist who is actually my Dad. He can no longer paint due to illness, but he loved to paint birds among other things. I stuck some objects from his art box onto the piece, and a notebook sketch, a bit of a poem which mentions birds and a father talking to his children, a little metal owl, all things relevant. The black splodge below the kingfisher is a bright blue feather but it will not photograph!
