I have just returned from McGregor Summer School in Toowoomba. What a creative extravagance. I did a class with Judy Wilford - she has an amazing wealth of knowledge, not just about her unique layered landscape technique, but also design and the interpretation of the Australian flora and fauna.
We did design exercises every morning
Loved doing this pointillism one - lots of ink dots (now to translate this into French knots!)
black and white grids
and another grids
Judy made us each a design book - one "challenge" was to make the front decoration
and this was my interpretation of the second "challenge"
