She is photographing. I am drawing. I am cheating using a recycled image, on day one. Hohum.

Playing about with photographs of our marvellous mural. The textures come from some of these abstract photographs. The words are from one of Rumi’s poems.

In between lectures and lesson plans and analysing artwork, I’ve also been learning new skills and playing with materials. Here are some pictures I made with milk, food colouring, washing-up liquid, a camera, and excellent teaching from Pippa Sanger. Basic instructions are here if you fancy having a go yourself; it’s a great way to create stand-alone abstract images, or to add to a library of textures and colours if you’re a digital collage-maker. I love how much they look like pictures of slides under a microscope (for instance, have a look at these. Beautiful!)
