I have been collecting my stuff for my workshops in Melbourne next week and I pulled out this book I bought a few years back when I only thought I might be interested. It is a guide to methods of painting written in the 15th century written by Cennini and translated into English. It's packed with all manner of fascinating information. I shall take it to read in the plane as I dare not sit around reading it right now - I am supposed to be making samples, collecting and sorting and then trying to work out how to get it all into my 3 suitcases.
It's a beautiful day today - not too hot but a fresh sea breeze.
A few of my fragment samples - tissutex onto panne velvet wrecked as much as I can today
this one is some frustrating thread scraps
and silk fibres with sinimay and Moonshadow Mist
Tonight we are off to Keating the Musical. By all accounts it should be good.
Tomorrow we are going to try the trip to Fremantle again for the outdoor chairs, hopefully before the shop closes this time.
What am I listening to in my studio? Tom Waits. What is Ian listening to in the house? Something else.....
