We started the workshop today with Pip, who led us through a series of warm up exercises experimenting with a new range of materials including inks, charcoal graphite pencils, pastels, acrylic paints.
It was great to work as a group, adding to each other’s work, and making the images more abstract each time.
After the break Fran suggested ways in which we could develop our individual designs for our cards , looking at layout and how to incorporate colour and mark making using the materials from the warm up exercise.
Several of us chose to work with acrylic paint, to introduce colour into the overall design, either as a background or as a detail.
In the last half an hour we all went outside into the churchyard opposite Llanelly House to make drawings of some of the architectural details, to use as a logo to go on the back of all the cards.
