On Friday evening November 7th FIBREWORKS Kingston welcomed Lynne Morin from Kanata, ON as our #2 Workshop Instructor in the Fall 2014 series.
|Darlene Moritz, first exercise, painted and stitched paper on Saturday|
|and while underway, here is Darlene's resulting painted canvas |
inspired by the first exercise...
Many of the students were all ready with ideas for some of the stitch work and painting and they came prepared with books, photos, camera shots for inspiration. Work came together quickly and the sewing machines were humming throughout the day.
Susan Farber begins a new series, and exploring great paint techniques is resulting in a
lot of movement reminiscent of a dust storm in the desert...
(well, maybe that is not what she saw, but My interpretation)
During the two days in the classroom, Lynne walked us through a number of approaches to creating design, including inspiration, resources, sketchbook use and beginning the process of laying pencil to canvas to design the first of two great small art works that would be painted on Saturday. The paints were mixed and colour laid to the canvas, with modifications along the way, and with consultation with Lynne and each other, the pieces began to come together.
|Maxine Bowen worked with inspiration from a favourite Emily Carr piece...|
|Robin Field - detail and colour excellence evident as she worked|
|Lynne and Catherine with more consultation underway- piece one finished|
and number two being laid out on the canvas
|Lorriane and Crystal hard at work...|
stitches added, work almost ready for re-framing
|The finished work heading to the front of the room|
as completed and ready for viewing....
|Ruth, Ann, Mary and Robin observing and chatting about paints, |
process and Beth in the corner stitching!
|Ruth Leblanc, Bethany Garner and Joan Willison, with work underway - |
exploring, thinking, ever-changing
|Sandra Smith - one done and one to go. Photographs from family |
travels as inspiration and no fear as she worked
resulting in stunning abstract interpretations
|Darlene Moritz... the Series begins! |
Now for more canvasses. Wallack's anyone?
|Crys Patry did the most stunning piece on the left. |
