Cutouts and Silhouettes

Jean Bryant“really enjoyed trying a different technique i.e. cutting out stencils from card and using them to build up a composition.  Mixed Media.  (Felt tip pens, watercolour, white gouache.)”

Gay Johns channeled her inner Cezanne!  In watercolour.

Helen Grandy is very handy with the Procreate App.  Not too many jugs and bottles but lots of fruit.

Sheila Southgate took “3 large and 2 small pots (from the museum).”  Which museum?  I want to know. “I traced them from my original drawing with a brush pen using a light box then played around with pattern.”

And other comments were:

Mary Rouncefield submitted her “life drawing translated into a silhouette.  Materials – cut paper.”

Priscilla Sorapure  says “my contribution this week, done in gouache and felt tips.  I enjoyed doing this and I hope other members did too, though my result is not at all like the one demonstrated by Moira Huntley.  I thought of it more as a search for repetitive shapes to form a pattern.  I only used the primary colours plus black and white and did do some colour mixing.”

Joel Mcfie used linocut.  “Not sure if it fits the brief as it’s not stencil.  Was based off three bird ornaments at my mum, Linda Pages’s house.”

And Mum, Lin Page, says “this is my entry for this week’s Challenge.  I used collage, watercolour, felt-tips and Inktense pencils.  Hope you like it.”   Yes Lin, I do.

Ann Baber entitled hers “‘Bird talk’.  A group of birds having a chat.  Painted in acrylics.”  Teresa Austrin stuck closely to the brief.  “This week’s challenge done in watercolour and pen.”
