Artistic Tuesday

This morning I auditioned fabrics for my planned art quilt, tentatively titled "Reflections in a Rocky Pool".

In the afternoon I went to art class at NIC. Today's class was on atmospheric perspective using colour. We all drew a cardboard box in two-point perspective, with auxiliary perspective for the flaps on the box, then used chalk pastels for the shading. It was a very useful class, and it is amazing how wonderful a cardboard box can look as art :-)
