A creative workshop working with a free approach to generating ideas through a working sketchbook, exploring abstract ideas and personal themes relating to land and seascapes. Explore mark making to develop exciting sketchbook pages, work with loose marks on paper with drawn lines, resist wash and layered tissue to develop a surface to fragment creating a series of abstract images.  Experiment with layering, painterly blending and contrast to generate abstract ideas in mixed media with the option to include hand stitch to further enhance the surface.
