Now I can see that well Ailsa! Hooray. If I click on the image I get an enlarged view. Still can’t see your Denis Brown like one though
How big is it, by the way?
Beautiful! Extra good when clicked on for the enlarged version.
All the practice paid off Ailsa! And thanks for the tip to see the bigger version Jane.
Very dramatic. Sombre as befitting the theme.
Yay Elsa, that is so intricate! I really like the contrast between the plain and the stitch-knitty every which way. So there is life after the garden …
Thanks Robyn, the very scribbly lettering tells my story of how I feel about the virus and quarantine so I have called it “Life in a Time of Corona Virus”. Remind you of anything? I have a half formed plan for a more complex weaving thing but dont yet know if i could pull it off.
Is this your stairway to climbing out of this CV situation? Very interesting how you got the writing going in different directions.
Really nice Robyn! The colours are yummy.
It’s like a staticky television. Our world gone awry. I presume you mean “Love in the time of cholera” Elsa. I think I read it, but a long time ago.
Well done Olive, that looks great. I like the big brush strokes that go through the composition, makes me think of Massimo. The black splodges echo the corona virus, a blot on our landscape at the moment. It’s presenting us with some unusual opportunities though, like our Zoom class with Jo.
Yes, What Jane said!
Love your perfect blots Olive! Hard to get in the right place but you’ve succeeded.
Those nasty corona blots!
So I wonder if the spikey top of the coronet relates to the spikey outside of the corona molecule?
Try drawing the coronet using letters only!
I especially like the spiral
Oh they are all so expressive Ailsa!
Getting back to golden autumn is more tempting than hanging out with the virus, I’m afraid. And yes, the rounded points on the stalks of the virus as depicted in the various media logos does resemble various coronet designs. Have a look at “coronet” on wikepedia.
That’s a fascinating wiki page, about coronets. What’s your background Robyn? Liquid graphite? Are your leaves acanthus leaves?
I love this spread Ailsa. Particularly the pages of text, next to the plain white backgrounds. They have quite an oriental look.
Well spotted: the background is a lump of water-soluble graphite that I dabbed with a damp sponge and then dabbed on the page. (Having first tried painting it but rather badly.) And yes, the leaves are stylised acanthus – as in a French Duke’s hat.
My favourite as well!
Love those charts/maps Ailsa. What are they?
They are old geological maps, so decided to turn then into new geological strata. University of Tas has been getting rid of all their old paper maps, and I was lucky enough to score some of them. The individual boxes were made 10x10cm to fit the criteria for the exhibition.
Wow !!! The imagination part is where I struggle
You worked it out Carol. I should have checked the website first! Just amazing! Everyone’s interpretations are so varied.
I like the sense of tilt Carol – everything feels skew whiff at present, doesn’t it. I’m glad you show us still on our axis despite the uneasiness.
Interesting Ailsa, I keep seeing this as raised, but I guess it’s carved out?
Your Covid interpretation reminds me of dandelion puffs, floating on the wind Elsa, or perhaps on the waves. I like the background.
There’s such a contrast between the streaming soft greys and the scary red – don’t mess with these flying puffs!
Ditto Jane, I noticed my spelling mistake after I posted too. Never mind there are worse things happening.
Great textural effect Elsa. It looks like they are having a hard time finding us in isolation. Hope it stays that way.
Thanks Carol and yes indeed fingers crossed for safe progression through lifted restrictions.
Well, I only noticed when you pointed it out Carol! Quite right, there are other things to worry about. Generally, we don’t read the words I think. Pattern and effect takes precedence.
