Textures and teeth

Gallery of ideas for textures.


We walked on the beach today…. we photographed textures for consideration of future art pieces. It was really thought provoking.

Its been an interesting day today…. it's almost always "turn around" day for the participants…

It's the Ah Ha moment.

Portraits are difficult. I don't pretend that its an easy class. That's why it's called a masterclass.

We strive for realism, and often end up with impressionism, but I always encourage pragmatism.

It's a joy for me as a tutor when suddenly a full mouth of teeth produce great excitement.

The eye of a child is recognizable, the nose of a Grandmother is  completed.

Each student is taken out of their comfort zone, and is pushed to the limit…. but end up with a great piece of work.

I'm the tutor, I need to encourage and guide gently… and the work is testament to my students enthusiasm.

    Congratulations to your students in the masterclass. Realistic portraits in fabric is not easy.
    The photographs taken on the beach are fabulous Pam. And my brain is working overtime as to the techniques one could use for the beach photo above.
    Thankyou for sharing your journey.
