Very much enjoyed a workshop with Helle Jorgensen at Byron School of Art which focused on using stitch as a drawing method.
Practiced embroidery stitches, some I have not done for a very long time and others that I am a bit more familiar with.
Inspired by the workshop, in the studio today I made the following two works.
After many, many months of not having a studio space I have finally created a lovely space in my new home in Northern NSW. Hopefully this means my productivity will rise!
A great weekend workshop Abstraction and Drawing, facilitated by Michael Cusack.
Below are some of the drawings I completed during the two days of drawing, considering form, line, colour and exploring the work of other artists working in Abstraction.
