This is a painting I made for a warm up exercise for the 'Textural Landscape' workshop at Hope and Elvis a couple of months ago.
One of the best things about teaching is actually making examples, it makes you so much more aware of how you create, and most times you learn new things along the way too!
(And, as usual, Cornwall managed to creep in!)
I had a great time with this, printing, scraping and sloshing the paint on!
The one thing that I can never get used to with teaching though, even after 23 years, is saying goodbye.
It's the best feeling in the world to see what the college students have achieved, getting University places, creating stunning work and being ready to go out into the big wide, world....
but it never gets any less heart- breaking.
