'What I did on my holidays'

A few pictures from my exhibition in Unit 9, South Square gallery, Thornton. This was inspired by a painting hoilday in Wales.  Maggie Brown, the artist/ teacher encouraged us to collect information in sketchbooks and, perhaps, photos and then create pictures in the studio.  This challenged my orthodoxy that landscapes should be painted in the landscape - although i have, of course, always created the textile picture in the studio. The pictures are watercolours with some fabric overlays and stitched onto the paper
