Autumn leaves, apples, word art and freedom to explore

1 October 2017

Inspired by the Kelvin River area and leaves collected nearby, as well as it being national poetry day, we began with some doodling and writing words in different colours, finding inspiration from our experience and finding ways to bring writing and drawing together.

We used coloured inks, beautiful transparent silky colours, to capture some of the autumnal green and golden brown hues as well as the shapes of the leaves.

Then we used palette knives and rollers to play around with the materials, bringing in some contrasting oil pastel textures, and just try out some different marks and let things flow 🙂 The apples from the community garden we took home and made into jam!
