I went to an Artists' Book Fair at the weekend and saw some astonishing books ranging from the very bare of the type "I am a bird, I fly" with a single picture of a very small bird in a corner of the last page to an amazing stall where there were the most beautiful, colourful, painted and otherwise ornamented arty books. Of course I had to run home to try to make my own.
So I rescued Teddy Nonameyet from his holiday break (don't ask, our teddies lead interesting lives) and we made a little comfortable oil pastel painting to gently ease us both back into making art.
The start. At this stage we always think - what's this? will it ever work? But hold on. It could get better (or not).
This time it did with the help of watercolour paints, watercolour, metallic and acrylic pens, and some stamping.
