Thursday 20th March
This morning was so lovely that I went out to draw. There are some barns at Hitcham which I have always liked and have previously drawn from a photo. It was extremely windy, but I knelt on a mat in the shelter of a hedge and had a great time.
I had these buildings in mind for project 3 – abstract print. The strong shadows were perfect so I felt as though I had achieved something here.

Today has been really productive and I am much encouraged. I took Project 3 work to art club ie: a series of photocopied/reduced images of my barn drawings. I had a great 3 hours cutting and sticking to see what sort of abstracts I could start to make. I am beginning to see how these could be done as reduction linocuts and I am working with the set colours.
Next step: photocopy some enlargements to see what comes from that.
