Textile Residency Day 2 Wednesday

I will expand on the A1 painting I did yesterday. I used mainly black ink plus yellow and red. The red ink was a concentrated type and was very strong and not the colour I really wanted. I wet the paper in areas and and drew into the wet surface referencing the tree photos I had before me. The water spread the ink and gave me some nice mixes of colour. The concentrated red was much too strong so I drew over it with a brown Caron d’ache crayon to knock it back.
I used some of the papers I had painted to create a collage based on a tree photo and made a raised surface. It needs more work but I need time to consider what. I worked into a couple of the pieces I did yesterday.
There were a few visitors who showed interest in the work and it was good to consolidate my thinking as I had to explain my what I was doing.

This is a finished piece made earlier to show how I have interpreted the art work
