Well, my intrepid friend Mike has taken to collage and no mistake, and so we recently went on a second collage workshop with Anne Carpenter. The photo at the beginning of this post shows our efforts. The glorious red cabbage on the lime green background was done by Mike’s lovely sister, Sarah. Mike made a fantastic piece showing a view of the Mont St Michel:
And I made another food picture, to accompany my green peppers from our previous day:
These rather flamboyant cakes are my rendering of small French sponge fingers with sultanas. I decided to jazz them up a bit with pink and gold. I quite liked the effect – it looked quite illustrative, like you might find on a birthday card. Our efforts this time were helped by a sample book of furnishing fabrics that my mother’s contact in the soft furnishings trade donated. The plain linen backgrounds really helped us. We had another great day and came away with things that we thought were worth framing, and so it was a success all round.
