Beginning a new series based on my travels. The challenge is to simplify the experience.
I decided a journal approach will help develop style and studies for larger art. Less pressure to “nail it” the first time and as you will see, the exercise leads to my goal… concise yet informative designs. Techniques and materials are not clarified yet, although my new supply of cotton fabric and threads will be tapped into.
Thanks go to the students in my design class at Puget Sound Rug School, who energized my own creativity. The first sketch is a result of one of the exercises. List a topic, describe it in words and motifs.
Over the past week I have developed three separate designs inspired by the trip to Seattle. The City View has seen 6 versions so far. Next steps to decide size, techniques, materials and begin with my favorite tools-my hands. Slowly I will communicate.
