Teesdale has been absolutely beautiful this year and the famous haymeadows are awash with colour. Although having said that my camera hasn't done them justice, I think the light was just too bright and has taken away a lot of colour. I understand the best time for photography is early morning and just before dusk was the light values are at their best.
I've been to see my friend Jenny this week who lost her husband a few weeks back. She's coming to terms with her loss but didn't feel like restarting her tutorials. She did however give me some homework!!!
Art4Mail group. We had to chose five numbers between 1 and 50 when adding our name to the database. When the deadline had been reached we were emailed with the technique or word relating to the numbers we had chosen. Mine were: pieced, stripe, colour a doodle, organic and glitter.
Three more atc's arrived from the Surface Design 'Technique' swap the top one is from Dotti Cullen who's technique was sun printing. Its really a very pretty purply-blue than shown in the photo, my scanner is giving off blue shadows and I can't seem to get rid of them. The middle one is from Gale Wrigley who uas used solvy and slashed fabrics and the bottom one is from Susan McIntyre. Susan has used fabric paper to create a patchwork background and fibres and machine stitching.
Keith and I are off tomorrow to a woodturning club he's heard is being held in Thirsk. I hope he finds it as interesting and as entertaining as I do the EG.
