Had hoped that last weeks Advanced Colour Course would teach me a few new things but alas no. But it did fill me with enthusiasm for my current project, the course triggered some great ideas for the design, so not a complete waste of time. The biggest inspiration for colour was my outing to Bristol and the affordable art fair on Saturday. I know I have definitely become an art junkie I wanted it all and I wanted it now!
I am finding out what pushes my buttons and there are 2 definite threads
- narrative pictures in really restful colours we bought a couple of Jane Eccles paintings (they are even more gorgeous in the flesh) They are called girl by a window and words unspoken
and really twisted stuff!!! www.bo-lee.co.uk (nate frizzell is amazing I've posted a pick of her lost in the thicket picture). www.finegrime.co.uk is another favourite gallery for really unusual pieces.
I'll post during the week the links for the the photographer we found at the fair, he was awesome.
Looking forward to my next couple of course this week, cushion making and shabby chic furniture painting. You have to take a piece to paint and I found this wicked 1930's dolls cot which should paint up nicely (and it only cost £20 from a junk shop, result!). I must remember to take a before photo before I start work on it
