Poured pulp and a little brush work. This was the last one I did of the day and it took me about 5 minutes. I think it has the most potential. Don't you think that I'd learn one day that the stuff I labor and fuss over is usually less good?
Playing with orange.
1. Pull white sheet. 2. Pour blues and purple. 3. Use stencil for flower blossom. 4. Use dental syringe for orange squiggles. 5. Wrinkles are bugging me.
This one was also toward the end of the day. I used mostly leftover colors just to get ride of them. Fence stencil used on the bottom.
Poured background, drips made by flinging pulp with a spoon tip, brushed on brown pulp over a stencil.I made the fence stencil during the workshop. Original photo is from our trip to Monticello last year.
Next steps on all of these is probably to go back in with pastels and/or ink. We'll see.
Andrea's studio, Hook Pottery Paper in LaPorte, IN, is not far from here and several Guild members and I hope to made a road trip this summer to see her set-up (she uses sustainable art practices whenever possible) and spend more time with this really cool lady.
