Amanda Hislop at Oxford Summer School-Day 1....

30th July 2018

A brilliant first day on my course....

...the theme 'where sea meets shore'...

...we started by sticking torn tissue, newsprint and teabag paper onto a sheet of A3 paper....


...while this was drying we used a fine pen to draw basic lines on A3 of our theme and paint using diluted procaine dyes.....


...wax candle was also used as a resist....


....back to the dry collaged A3 for painting...


....folding and cutting came next...



...this folding produced different aspects of the larger work....


....this can be cut up in a variety of ways or be made into a book...


....I particularly liked this landscape, the shades of blue changing with the various papers used also the texture created by the collage....



.....this is a piece of A4 Khadi rag paper which I painted on both sides then will fold in another way when dry...



....such an enjoyable day and can't wait to see what tomorrow will bring........
