The dog had a good walk ( serious browny points earned there by me! The dog keeps a tally, you know. He is a hard task master!)
I had a bit of a tidy up in the studio, which meant I could put up the sewing machine!!
I stitched all four of the pepper mixed media pieces. They are now ready for framing.
I listened to all four episodes of Brideshead Revisted back to back on Radio 4 Extra ( I just love the listen again facility when I can just listen to a whole block of programs). I had forgotten how melancholy the story is.
And I did a sketchbook page which was pretty successful.
So, in case you're interested, that is the background page done with the corner,corner, side technique from the last post, with additional texture added by spraying ink though some net packaging. The ink was too much and the background is lost, but that is the point of sketchbooks, to record and play - not necessarily to get it right.
Then a bit of sketching and inktense pencilling.
Then the piece at the left hand is a strip of coloured paper, with a bit of wax resist, stitched with the same leaf pattern.
And I spoke to Christine Seager about helping out with the CQ Gallery at FOQ - but more of that in another post.
