Last night I returned from time out up the coast and put together a post on that at my visual eclectica blog this morning.
I packed up some ink, watercolours and various journals and found some space to work sitting in cafes as well as at the holiday apartment. Hers a few mages from a cafe setting.
This is cotton rag paper ...a khaki journal i've been using lately... figuring out the best ways to enhance the qualities inherent in both paper and materials.
This concertina book is a really engaging surface to paint on...
If i tire of a section i rework it or introduce other colours etc
that can mean adding or subtracting in a way that one regrets at times
but in order to give life to something that is par for the course!
In a way there are a lot of ideas stored in one small series of works in this concertina book.
Back to the cloth journal ... simple mono-prints
I started this journal at the Kew Mlllennium Seed Bank and have added to it now over several work sessions in the past few months. Ive got 4 more concertina books to use at some point and am looking forward to seeing what is generated by using this format.

and November 2011
I could post pages of journal images. Much to do... I'd best get moving now.
