The layers of mountains and clouds are coming together in my first Huangshan collage.
Open Studios Cornwall starting on 27th May. It is a great event that is really worth visiting, I hope you will come and see the far west of Cornwall at its loveliest. The studio is good too. http://www.openstudioscornwall.co.uk/artist/amanda-richardson/
Dye-work for the first collage of the Yellow Mountains in China.
The Bluebells are in flower, now for the Squills.
A short video of the sounds of water and birdsong that accompanied me walking down the Penberth Valley and onto the cliffs, with leaf and flower bursting all around me.
The coastal landscape at Treryn Dinas that will be home for the bluebells and squills.
At this moment Squills and Bluebells are in full bloom on the coast of Cornwall, and are not doing too badly in my studio.
After some tricky dye-work on the bamboo canes, the background bamboo is in place ready for me to add the camellia 'Bob Hope' and perhaps a couple of songbirds as they spend so much time in the camellias.
