Home today with a cold :( And I have one of those obnoxious coughs that are loud and annoying - apparently a remnant of having croup as a small child ...
Last week I received my pack of Diploma Of Tapestry books for this year - YIKES! 4 subjects: "Apply Colour Theory In Response To A Brief", " Use Advanced Drawing Techniques To Represent And Communicate Concepts", "Apply Research And Critical Analysis To Inform Artistic Practice Parts 1 & 2", and "Produce Textile Fibre Work" - the last subject the only one to actually involve physical tapestry weaving.
I confess to being a bit overwhelmed as I perused the books and the due dates - typically for SW TAFE, my first assigment is due to be posted only 1 1/2 weeks after I received my books ... so I spent the weekend frantically painting with gouache a colour wheel, 4 'contrasts of hue' exercises, and a 'light/dark' contrast exercise. Only one 'colour light/dark contrast' exercise to go, and 3 10cm x 10cm collages. Thanks to Anita, who kept Lily out of my way for most of the time! I'm going to draw up a colour wheel for Lily to paint, since she wanted to 'stay and help Chelle' :)
But for the moment, I think I'll go back to bed ... *splutter*
