This is this weeks page.  It looks a bit busy but in fact the main bit of the page only takes a few minutes.  It's the photo that the toe is pointing to that takes the time, but not too long.  Bring a couple of photos and some photo copies of the photos you wish to transfer so that you have some to practice with.

Dina Wakley

Thought you would like to see one of the books I made with Dina when she was teaching at Olney.

The flower was drawn with a pencil used for writing on glass or plastic and when wet with a paintbrush creates a shadow effect and then filled in with inks, pencils, paint etc.  I really like this colour scheme - purple and yellow.
  The book is made of canvas and was a challenge in using the colour wheel.  Hope you enjoy.  I will post up page for Wednesday on Saturday, as all my batteries are flat in my camera and just waiting for them to recharge.
