September 2013

At our regular meeting in September we learned about the summertime IAMPETH convention held in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Five days of pointed pen immersion in the comfort of a nice hotel, sounds like heaven!! for more information about the 2014 convention have a look at

We explored a couple of exercises at the meeting. One, we were given a small precut matte. Using a parallel pen to lay down some marks and then filling tiny spaces in with coloured pencil, we were then ready to add a quote. It was good to walk away with something that could be looked at as a 'finished piece', simple but an idea that one could work on and expand.

The second project was to learn the method of painting a Versal letter with a ribbon wrapped around it. There were varying degrees of success! but a jumping off point to explore on an exhibition piece perhaps.
