I had a lovely couple of mornings running a still-life workshop for the ladies of The Twickenham Green Art Group. We all brought in objects and made a huge set-up of colourful fabric, cushions, bags, patterned pottery and kitchen bits and bobs. Using view-finders to really focus-in on a small area, we concentrated our sessions on composition, colour and pattern and the results were so varied and exciting. The ladies added string to texturise and add 3D areas to the work. We looked at other artists work like Mary Fedden, and photographed with iPads and phones to make a record of the still-life for completing at home.
I really look forward to working with the group again in the spring and summer.
