New sketches for paintings

So inspired by my trip to Canada, had to do some new sketches for future paintings.

Autumn colours

Yes, it is now! Colours are changing, birds are migrating, the days are getting shorter, its autumn.
 But with autumn comes jam making! Lovely rose hips picked on a nice beach walk.
 The colours are amazing, every where you look, berries are spilling over. Happy birds!
             So, on that note- an Autumn journal page, made up from scrap prints, and a napkin.
                                 The old envelopes made excellent roof tops for the bird houses.
                                         Gelli printet on top. Dark blue acrylic.

                                                       And finished it with oil pastels.
                                                             "House for let - tp13"

And some more prints.....

Gelli printing is very addictive!
I need to come up with a brilliant idea, for using all of the piles and piles....
                                                   The collection is growing by the day!
                                       I love it when "mistakes" turns out to actually work!
      The paint was getting old, and water seems to have separated from the pigment it self.

Gelli Printing in Canada.

                           We all had a lot of fun, printing for a whole day. So much talent :)
                                                              And concentration!

 I got so inspired by the rocks by the lake, and the "cairns" on the cliffs, so had a go at making masks and printing rocks.....



                                                 Another group of very talented ladies.
                                                    Woosh........another print is born!

 The home made gelli plates were taking a beating in the sweltering heat! But they did good :)

                                  A lovely selection of Carla Sondheim inspired printing methods.
