Student Sue Carroll sent me a photo of her finished piece from last week’s Illuminated Letter Class. I love the direction she took this piece. It’s always exciting to see a group of people start with similar elements and end up with individual and creative work. The leaves around the cat are beautifully patterned and remind me of Indian print fabric. The drop leaves seem to represent a forest outside the altar or house. The deep grasses are waving above watery blue which feels like a river. We practiced mark making before the students chose from the several projects offered. Sue cleverly used delicate gold marks to make up the cat’s coat.
The rest of the photos here are works in progress from the class day.
This class will be repeated on Saturday, June 10th at Artistic Artifacts.
The piece above was done with stencils and gel pens.
To the right you can see a work sheet of marks.

I’m looking forward to the next class!
