This design is for a commission 4 feet x 3 ft.
Green Waves Gwenver is near completion, with granite cliffs rising above the pounding sea.
In this video you can see the collage come together in all its saturated colour. Light and shadow move across the olive grove, shifting and changing as you walk past.
A long and stormy week to focus on green waves.
A real achievement, I finally have the correct street location on Google. I AM ON THE MAP. So if any of you want to come and visit, there is a chance Google will now lead you to my door. https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/115495272887426844352/+Amandarichardsonart...
Subdued shades of green satin are being woven together to create the feel of breaking waves.
The dye-work has begun for my new textile collage of waves. Here are both the paper onto which dyes were painted, and the fabric to which the dyes were transferred. There is a real shift in colours, and calculating this is always a challenge.
I have just finished Red Anemones in Olive Grove and have captured the saturated colour and warm sunshine I so craved at mid-winter. If you are suffering winter blues I hope it warms you too. http://amandarichardsonartist.com/content/red-anemones-olive-grove
In Porthleven last week I bought my new Studio Hat. This, together with black fur ski boots, is keeping me cosy. Unless it gets really cold, wearing many thermal layers is my answer to winter. I had great fun trying on hats, and for anyone finding themselves in Cornwall, do go to the Saltcellar Workshops. http://saltcellarhats.co.uk/Collections.html
The red anemones are flourishing beneath the ancient olive tree. Amazingly the last flower of the bunch I bought four weeks ago has just faded.
