I will not enjoy myself, I will not enjoy myself, I will not ....

Having decided yesterday that I don't really like transfer painting, I've been fighting hard against the notion that I might actually be starting to have some fun (you know how it is once your mind is made up about something you have to stubbornly refuse to accept any other opinion ..... for a while at least!!) I've been plodding on, trying out a few different things. Here's one of the experiments I've been trying ironing the colour through a sheet of lace.Some things are working better than others but I guess that's just to be expected but I am (begrudgingly) starting to have a bit more fun with the technique. I thought that I was almost ready to put together my submission post but Janet, my tutor, has just emailed with a few things that I might try to see if I can improve my results so there is a bit more work to be done yet.In the meantime I am making notes on everything that I'm doing in my sketchbook so hopefully I'm going along the right lines even if I'm not 100 percent happy with the actual results I'm getting.

Actually the thing that I'm loving the most, is what is happening on the baby wipes that I'm using to clean my brushes onLook at this fabulous rainbow of colours. I did have a little play to see if this would transfer to fabric but it didn't really work. I did get some colour out but not the full range that is showing.

I'm going away to Amsterdam for a long weekend from Thursday so there might be a bit of a blogging break, but I'm back Tuesday and have the rest of that week off work so the plan is to really get cracking with some more course work so hopefully lots to blog about next week.
