Exploring New Ideas and Techniques Guest Blogger: Iris Bell

Studies in Art and Design 301 Exhibition (Gladiola) Blog #5 in a series

Art is a form of relaxation for me.  I enjoy the way colors and textures work together and the way that they make people feel.  Over the past two years I have learnt to explore many different techniques while using the theories of Art and Design.  I have worked with color studies and developing sketchbooks of inspiration that will provide many years of design sources.

During this journey I have discovered that I enjoy pulling abstract images from close up photos.  I am amazed with the number of different designs that can be extracted from one image.  For a large part of my work these past few sessions I have used a portion of the centre of clematis.  From this one component I have developed a number different explorations with a number still not explored.  I am enjoying the way that there is a continual exploration of new ideas and techniques.

    Love the organic lines. Exploring and experimenting is really the fun part, isn’t it?
