It's a very strange sensation, the work has gone, more projects are waiting............... where to start?
I started on the exercises straight away, playing with colour, thinking about colour... but I had a thought - what about my sketchbook? I have sketches, I have logged my thoughts as I've worked my way through the projects, but actual sketchbook work?
So, I started to do some research on my favourite textile artists, then I went downstairs and gathered up my textile books and my Selvedge magazines.............. I feel inspired by just doing this, I can feel the ideas flowing and the work waiting to fill up the pages.
I intend to start with Alice Kettle, Audrey Walker and Julia Caprara and see where I go from there.
All 3 of these textile artists create marks through stitch and their use of colour is exciting.
