More new ideas just started - I have a collection of photos of life drawings that were sold at the Compass Gallery, Glasgow in 2000 when I graduated, they are A0 in size. I thought this might be an exciting idea to explore using the photographs and also the ones that are left in my portfolio. This example is A4 size but I definately plan on scaling it up.
Looking out of my window is a treat every day. I never get tired of the changing colours of the sea. This photo was taken mid summer, in the evening and the bay looked like a mill pond. I try to enhance the different shades of grey with the different stones I find by using various polishing techniques and finish off rubbing the stone with olive oil. It's nice to add some essential oil to the mix for an added sensory experience. Two pieces that recently sold, the necklace to a German tourist who was visiting Scotland by cruise ship. The other to a local lady with a love for Caithness.
