Shades Of Purple

We had a very busy time on Wednesday night at my art society.

It was a great opportunity for us all to try out different ideas using texture in our sketch books.

Here you can see I used coloured tissue paper torn and glued down with acrylic paint, inks and pastel worked over the top.

You can see I left some of the underneath papers showing through.

I will develop this further, hopefully!

You can use anything to build up textures, wallpaper, paper towels, sand, plaster the list is endless.

Everyone produced exciting work and all so different.

Here are some purple brooches, as you know it's a colour that features a lot in my work!

My Mum says my bedroom was purple when I was very young, perhaps it is a sort of comfort to me?
