Thank you #louisefletcher and #alicesheridan for delving into this question. I will be journalling my journey to lessen the wrench I feel when parting with my work over the next wee while. I hope in some way this helps other artists who feel a similar way.
I recently completed an on-line taster course #louisefletcher that took me out of my comfort zone and into a way of self-expression that I feel is a true reflection of myself and a style of working that embraces my love of bold line and colour.
Working further on this journey I am experimenting with a smaller 6″ square format. I will choose several of these to develop further. I am enjoying working on Fabriano Artistico 300gsm paper and will carry on my studies using this support. Mediums are acrylic, water-soluable wax pastel, soft pastel and charcoal.
