Dyeing Today....


and for most of the rest of the week. Writing, too, and printing on some of the cloth, but probably not all at the same time. My concentration definitely doesn't stretch to that any more. My camera/computer interface is sulking, so I can't show you the lovely brights and muted pastels that I'm making, but if you can go to Lyon, you'll be able to meet 'em up close and personal. Not to mention that the computer can't sulk forever...and hopefully, I'll have more cloth to show you later on in the week.

I'm trawling through the Barcelona photographs, playing with one I took of a tree, the bark is beautiful and it has been grafittied (grafittoed? grafittised?) to boot, though I didn't notice that til after I'd taken the shot. We sometimes think that inspiration will never come to us; but look at the shapes in this photograph, and the colours, and the difference between the two shots as a result of the filters I've applied in PSP (Paint Shop Pro, to the uninitiated...can't afford Photoshop...). Who could fail to be inspired by that?

In fact, call it a challenge if you like. Borrow one of the photos, or both, if you like, and use it as the basis for an idea. Pop it up on your blog, link it to this post and let me know when you've done so. Lets see how many different concepts come out of these two images....or rather, one image.
Have fun!!
