Newark Park has opened again and I went to have another look around for ideas in patterns, objects and spaces. On the upstairs landing there is a cabinet of blue China which caught my attention. I might use ideas from these to progress my work on the book.
For the exhibition at Newark Park in June I have been planning to make a book based on the Twelve Brothers story. Due to my wrist still being sore I haven't been able to do much in the way of sampling, just thinking about it. While sorting through things today I came across this little mock up of a book I made in the autumn last year. It has some of the ideas I'd been thinking of for my proposed new book incorporated into it - transparency / translucency, stitching, text, secret / hidden areas.
I managed a little bit of drawing the other day when we went for a short walk near South Cerney lakes. There were some raggedly bulrushes still standing despite all the winds. The path was under water in places but it was good to get out with a sketchbook again.
