This month I started an on line screen printing course ran by the really inspirational Dionne Swift. It has been ideal for me as I can complete it in the hours I choose.
My final Major Project is well under way and I have based it on my childhood favourite book 'Princess & the Pea' during the design research phase I have discovered the love for the layering effect of the famous bed with 'twenty mattresses and twenty feather beds'
|A up to date day look of the layering|
My aim is to recreate this layering effect . So far I have created lots of mark making using lots of different mediums to take forward to a final piece
|Using Brusho and Letraset ProMarker|
|Using Brush and sweeping strokes with paint brush|
|Using Brusho put adding water first to create the bleeding effect|
|Using Brusho but letting areas dry first|
|Using Adirondack color wash|
These have been completed after I attempted the first tuitions from Dionne Swift on line workshop I am totally inspired and I want to create the above on fabric as soon as I possibly can !
Above are a sneak preview of my first attempts. What makes it so exciting is knowing I can re-create at home. The tuition is excellent and easy to follow........for me and my busy life the only downside is finding the time.I will be back I have a week off the last week in November so please re-visit and see what I have been creating other than a mess in my work room !
