Week One - Mini Beasts!

Back to work after a 5 week break! There are nine of us in the group - a warm welcome to Jan our new member. Our new venue has great natural light and we should settle into it smoothly over the weeks. We started the term on a project around mini beasts (and in particular butterflies). This subject allows us to really explore the amazing designs, colours and surface textures of these deceptively diminutive beauties. The visual qualities we see in these creatures are perfect for soft pastels. They also give us a great opportunity to get back into gear, re-tuning our technical skills, as we zoom in on the finer details of the butterflies.  See previous posting for course dates and a list of projects. Here are the very early studies of our mini beasts:
