Well that is my first week of second year completed and I have never felt like such a luddite. As a very mature student of 54 years of age, this week I have felt every day of those years. I have struggled with this new on-line world and the technology that accompanies it. I was therefore delighted when the first project was to create postcards and like slipping into a pair of old ‘baffles’ (for those of you not familiar this is a Scottish phrase it means slippers) I returned to my easel and trusted paints. While not very Intermedia, I really enjoyed the process of creating this body of work.
Acrylic, sand, mica and gold paint
Cold wax and oil
Print and colour wash
