Playing with texture

It's been a while since I had a brush in my hands and while I'm waiting for paints and mediums to arrive from USA I've been trying to get the feel for layers and texture again.

'Numbers and letters', 12x12 canvas (a gift a for a 10 years old boy):

'Beneath the texture', 10"x12" canvas board:

Online classes

It has been a while since my last post but the thing is that beside hectic at work I have been creating. I have completed another altered book, started altering few thins, made some book covers which are awaiting to be bound, have enrolled into jewelery class...

Well I decided not to post it in chronological order. I will start with my latest project.

Last week I got an e-mail from a friend of mine, Martina Hart to join her on the journey through "Texture Town" by Julie Prichard and Chris Cozen . The class started 2 weeks ago and some catching up was required. Lucky I already had mediums and paints required for the class but this didn't stop me ordering more.

The first lesson was Implied texture and I made Journal covers:

The second lesson was Choose your colour (you may have only one guess about my first choice):

The second and third colour choice are waiting for canvases to dry...
