Self imposed limits

DSCN5174One of the things that Melinda got us to work with in Sunday’s workshop was a favourite creativity boost of mine: working within self imposed guidelines or limits.  Since my return to the Hill, I’ve restricted myself to working only with black and white and only on variations of a Skinner Blend.  It’s been part of my preparation for the course and has been really fascinating. I have looked at creating different visual effects and different forms and have experimented with both sanded then polished and lightly textured surfaces.

Even within those restrictions, there are still lots of options!

DSCN5192As a passionate lover of colours though, I am ready to give vent to my desire for more colour as I work on another aspect of the course later this week.  But there’s more Black and White exploration to come tomorrow!
