The initial blocking in of this collage of Carn Galver is almost complete, now for the fine detail.

The collages I am planning all focus on granite. My line has been full of dyed silk on its journey towards rock.

Carn Galver acrylic ink on paper Amanda Richardson Artist

Returning to the coast of Cornwall as a subject for my textile collages, I have decided to work from a series of paintings I made out in the landscape. I love working outside but of course this does not work for collage, however it is perfect for these acrylic ink paintings on paper. This is Carn Galver, a high point in the far west of Cornwall; a magnificent pile of granite covered in heather and gorse that flower in high summer.

A boulder strewn stream leading down from the mountains is to be the setting for meconopsis and rhododendrons.

mountains in disperse dyes

Moody mountains were the backdrop to all our travels in the Eastern Himalayas this summer. This challenging dye-work reflects the experience. You can see the mirror image on the paper on which I painted the dyes before heat transferring them to polyester satin.
