My inspiration for the Fine Art Textiles project is taken from photos and film of diving Loch Duich kindly sent to me by Perth Dive Club. Loch Duich is in the highlands of Scotlands and enters the sea by Kyle of Lochalsh. Here are some of my sketchbook pages for the project - paintings and drawings from which I hope to pick and convert to textiles.
These pages are from my markmaking exercises and when I make the textiles the colours will be blues, greens, turquoises and a bit of shimmer. The brief is to make either a wallhanging or a 3D item, but first I have to make lots of samples in fabrics so I think I'll decide later depending on how they inspire me to proceed.
