Notice what you notice

Notice what you notice with Christine Chester started this week. I wasn't sure how it would work being on zoom with some of the participants whilst some others were in Christine's studio, but it worked really well.  There was a mix of Christine talking, small group interaction, whole group interaction and individual working.  The three hours zipped along.

After making notes on what I had observed in the photo above we had a small group discussion about what the other ladies saw in the photo.  We each had a turn at looking at the images or items the others in the group had chosen.

After this we were challenged to use only paper, scissors and paint to experiment with ideas inspired by our item.  I looked first at the roof tiles and cut a strip of paper and shaped it.  I wet the paper in order to make it curve.

I painted some strips of the paper using the pattern of the roof tiles in the brush strokes.  The paint wasn't quite the colour I meant it to be!  I made cylinders with the painted paper.  We were allowed to use glue!

I cut another strip of paper and after painting it I tried making a spiral - potentially a 'book form'.

I don't know where this experimentation will take me.

Watch this space!

Thanks for joining me today
