Day 1 of Louise Fletcher’s 7 day course ‘ Find Your Joy free taster 2020’
My first ever attempt at abstract painting. I chose my favourite colours – blue, turquoise and gold with black and white and as many brushes and utensils I could find.
So here tis:
The paper was sectioned into 6 with masking tape first and then painted over – quite hard to ignore the tape!
The challenge was to paint with my chosen colours for 30 minutes – I found this a long time and towards the end was sploshing on paint then scraping it off, however this in itself was interesting as I had to try different marks and textures with paint brush, trowel, wood bark and modelling pens.
Wondering whether I could use this technique with textiles and fibres?

Day 1- 31 May
Decorative felt for a bag.
Added a lot of fabric and wool and then finished with free machine embroidery – this was for a bag however the felt was too thick to attach to the purse fixing and will use it to make a pouch bag with a clip closure.
