I had 3 friends in this morning for a very informal drawing session. I didn't take pictures as they are , I think, self conscious about their drawing right now. It went very well, though. Today, we started with the line--the different kinds and the feelings they can evoke. We did a doodle page of as many different lines as we could think of, a page of line doodles representing different emotions, and then I introduced zentangles. We also had time to start a small contour drawing of a leaf.
I got a new book in the mail this week called Drawn To Stitch by Gwen Hedley. I haven't finished reading the whole book yet, but I couldn't resist trying one of the exercises. The picture shows newspaper bonded to photocopy paper, drawn on, then cut and woven back together. After that, I scanned it and played around with the scale. It tried to transfer one to fabric, but it didn't come out very well. I guess the cheaper inks work better. I would like to experiment with that a little more because I would love to do some on fabric.
