Home again from the colour workshop at Material Obsession with Kathy Doughty and Reece Scannell.
In a word...amazing!
I have learnt so much and look forward to putting it into practice.
The first day was spent discussing black, white and the gray scale. Reece spent the morning sharing his experience as a photographer by explaining how we can have mood, texture, light, depth, and contrast from using mid, dark and light shades. He was amazing, leading us into a world that has the potential to add so much to our humble "patchwork". We analysed photos and discussed the warmth and coolness that can be achieved in this palette.
After lunch we spent the afternoon with Kathy working on the Soul Searching quilt, putting what we had learnt in the morning into practice. Having a small stash of white, cream and grey, this was a little tricky...oh well might have to head upstairs to the shop and see if they have anything suitable!
Then off for dinner with friends, some rest and readiness for Day 2!
Lots more photos tomorrow, some have already been on Kathy's blog if you want to peek!
