MISCELLANEA

Sometimes it's good to try something different!

Recently I have experimented with painting in a style something like pointillism. 

I have also been using mixed media with a slightly more abstract approach.

Even more adventurously, I have been "playing" with pure wool fibres, using wet felting techniques to make atmospheric "paintings".

Here are some of the results!

Above are some small paintings using various elements which give texture, and fluid acrylics or acrylic inks. 

Above are some small experimental paintings using purely wool.

Each painting is wet-felted using dyed merino wool, and when dry, a little detail is added using embroidery threads.

Two night time scenes!                                   

 Original paintings on heart-shaped slates make lovely gifts. I paint them in acrylic paint and then they are lightly varnished.

Here is a slate depicting a goldfinch. So endearing!
