Reflection: Work in Progress

I've been really busy experimenting lately - trying to develop my Coloured Transparency Work. Am really interested in creating layers and movement where the overlapping sheets create new colours. I've also introduced some repetition based on pattern through the use of mirrors. Here's what I've been working on - so far I'm happiest with the above image - I love the incidental shapes that occur in the photograph along with the sharp and blurry areas. Am excited to see where all this experimenting takes me - will keep you posted!

Art Technician Insight

Oh how I love visits from the Starbeck Sales Van! It's filled to the brim with drawers of unusual, exciting range of multicultural artifacts. They're a fantastic resource for any school or artist, and our school buys from them at least once a year to refresh our drawing resources. We bought a range of dried seed pods for one of the GCSE exam questions this time, but previously we've bought masks, fabrics, wooden stamps and bowls.

I've also been using the seed pods as part of my 365 project as they are so beautiful to photograph.
