I am very excited about a new project that I am embarking on. After Art Weeks I realised that the route for my guests to use took them down the side of our house and all they had to look at is the blank wall of the side of my studio. So, I am making a mosaic picture for this wall. It’s going to be huge – at least, it’s the largest piece I’ve made to date, 120cm x 160cm (4ft x 5ft 3ins). I decided that the picture would be an English country garden with lots of colour. I bought the backing board today and drew out the outline. I am going to have to make it outside because the board is too heavy to move about so progress will depend on the weather. The finished piece will certainly be colourful, I just hope it looks like a garden full of flowers.
I’ll put a few pictures up when there is something to show.
On the subject of mosaic project I am holding a mosaic beginner’s workshop tomorrow. I’m really looking forward to passing on mosaic techniques so that others can enjoy the art too.
