It was quite a change on Tuesday.Shelley Rhodes had been invited along and her talk was”Travels with a sketch book”.This appealed to me on several levels. Number one was the idea of holiday photos, I never know how to use them. Shelley explained that she was a mixed media artist who managed to sketch every day. She prepared her books with a variety of ways and then played with pains and inks.Her talk was illustrated with a slide presentation and of course , many of her books were also displayed. She then briefly explained how these pages can be moved forward into a finished work.
I was really inspired by what she said and plan to make far more use of a sketch book. She has an exhibition coming up soon, Lancaster museumLA1 1HT,29 March to 6th July.There are three exhibitors ,and its called Print Additions. I will be visiting.
