At the beginning of 2015 I dutifully started my monthly revolutions – much easier than resolutions as they can be changed as I see fit!
I decided to step right out of my comfort zone and explore new mediums and ideas – namely, flower painting classes and lino cutting. Living life on the edge as always.
I joined a 10 week class at the Edinburgh Drawing School and its the most fun I’ve ever had on a Tuesday afternoon. 2.5 hours of observing and honing my drawing skills (haven’t done that since primary school) – I loved the course so much I enrolled for a second block, this time with the intention of using the printmakers workshop to produce a series of lino cuts. Putting wood cutting on the back burner – not literally – as I discovered a linocut takes about 3 hours, a woodcut about 3 days and it hurts my thumb!
So, heres my sketches from the first 10 weeks – where Im going with them – well stay tuned!
