Colour , Mark and Composition with Gizella K Warburton

A week since inspirational  3 day course with Gizella K Warburton  at  wonderful Lund Studios.

Travelling up by train and bus, it was the white time with hawthorn and cow parsley everywhere
Stayed in Easingwold at the very comfortable George Inn ( can recommend the coley with spring vegetable broth )  and delicious lunches were supplied by 'Tea Hee's' 

 We started with drawings  and rubbings of the local surroundings, collecting marks and textures
Collecting and making sequences of objects for shape and colour ( who knew I'd get so excited by an old dog lead...)

Colour references 

Drawings from drawings  and then in colour, (loved using cardboard, inspired by Peter Sacks) 

Printing ,painting, drawing and stitching on fabrics and papers 

 Creating colour/tone sequences with those  painted and printed  fabrics and papers
Mini compositions ( background, 2 elements/accents and a line) , best balanced and favourites not necessarily the same thing 

At home, pinning up some of the outcomes of these exercises in my own 'habitat'  finding linkages , mulling over  how  I might incorporate  some of these  approaches into my own practice.
