Some examples that have gone into the kiln this evening to fire as I type away…..
The lovely Hannah one of my fellow student’s told me I was to fire it as evidence of my first attempt at painting this amazing Medieval Knight. He is just SO amazing and stood in such an interesting pose for me amid his beautifull Architectural Tracery….
Our amazing Lecturer Rachel Phillips demonstrated HOW we should tackle copying it using a Crow Paintbrush and a 50/50 mix of Bistre Brown & Best Trace Black with a medium sprinkle of Gum Arabic. She of course made it look effortless and oh so easy to do, she is such a skilled accomplished & immensley talented artist whose work is just off the scale amazing. We were shown how to shadow shade,paint beautifull tracelines,how to apply paint by Flooding an area. For homework last week we had completed our Heads of the Virgin and were critiqued by the High Goddess herself, then in one to one Tutorial’s we each had to pitch our proposed Historical Copy selected from the Archives of Ely Cathedral’s National Stained Glass Museum to her.
