Time in the garden.

Jenn has started working into her second concertina sketchbook, using KarenStamper's Gardens and Allotments course as the starting point.

Karen uses all sorts of media and techniques to prepare the pages.Here Jenn has used printing with bubble wrap and edges of corrugated card, printing from leaves and plants directly, spraying wet ink and allowing it to run and using string to twang against the page as well as in a ball.

She has added collage from gardening magazines and tried to integrate it into her own drawing.She has made use of Posca pens, Artgraf , and Inktense pencils along with graphite and fine drawing pens.

She has found the process very interesting but wants to try to be much freer in her interpretation. The tendency is to be too literal, she feels she needs to work larger and not worry about if everything is in the right place!
At least the good weather in lockdown has afforded opportunities to enjoy being in our gardens.
