On Thursdays I have been going to a class with Greame Drendel who has introduced me to gouache. I think I have come to like it thanks to his great tuition.
These are all 30 cm x 20 cm

And  bold use of coloured pencils blow

Printmaking installation

Small installation made from the small pieces of tissue that I have been using to whip back my plate in  printmaking in semester 1.

Wonderful Photographer

Have just come across this great body of work by Iranian photographer Shadi Ghadirian
I particularly like this interesting commentary on the role of women - not just in Iran!
