DIGITAL DESIGN WORKSHOPS

All images have been manipulated from the top left image- a photo of beautiful flowers from the tropical 'Cockspur Coral Bean' tree. I have used only colour filters and a bit of cropping.
Yes, a bit of colour - it feels so strange to be excited about colour for a change. I have been teaching 'Digital Design' to a few groups of people over the past few weeks. Great fun. I am thoroughly enjoying the challenge - teaching mainly 'mature' ladies who are enthusiastically embracing the challenge of the computer and how it can be used in their arts practices. We are all learning from each other, and some remarkable designs have been created. Some of the results are here, mostly printed onto T shirt transfers then ironed onto fabric, ready to be developed into textile projects.

  5. I love this.
    It is always good ... playing with colors.
    People dare not often anyway.
    Even children are already looking colors very accurately. Too bad. It's so fun ... the life with color.

  6. Isn't it fun Noela! There is a world of unlimited resources out there for inspiration. Maybe it'll put an end to the dreaded 'blank canvas syndrome'.

  7. Attirée par ces petits carrés colorés... Comme les Indiens, charmés par les gouttes de pluie solidifiés qu'étaient les perles de verre de Venise, alors inconnus pour eux !!!

  8. Thanks for all the comments - yes, a bit like coloured glass Beatrice, all a bit wild for me personally, but hey - good to break out of the mould occasionally.
