Line exercises x 4These small explorations are rather fun to do. I think the trick is knowing when to stop adding lines!
|Compositions with line.|
Make a twelve-step colour wheel that includes tints and shades
|Fabric choices for colour wheel.|
|Twelve-step colour wheel with tints and shades.|
Make gray scales in both solids and prints
|Twelve-step colour wheel and two gray scales.|
Create two compositions using prescribed shapes (one with focal point)I'm too tired to go and take a picture of the other one right now, so this one will have to do.
|Circular composition with focal point.|
Monochromatic composition with focal pointThis exercise called for seven values of a single colour.
|7 values of one colour.|
A little "fabric map" kept me from getting things mixed up.
|Staying on track.|
I based this exercise on a photo I'd taken a few years ago.

I think I like it better in this orientation. Maybe. It's hard to tell after a while!
|A different orientation.|
In addition, there's a pretty client quilt on my frame waiting for a finish, and I've been diligent about hitting the gym three times a week. Yay!
I'm a bit tuckered out tonight, but it feels great to be chewing through my huge, slimy frog.
(Ha! That sounds soooo delightful!)
Leonie Dawson planted the frog-eating reference in my brain. She advises goal setters to do one big, difficult task first thing in the morning. That task is rather like eating a frog. Not something you look forward to but, if you must, it's best to get it over with so you can enjoy the rest of your day.
I won't belabour the metaphor in future posts, but this Judge Certification Programme prep work is definitely my gigantic, hairy "frog". A bit intimidating, definitely challenging, but mandatory if I want to reach my goal. Mmm, Yummy....Frog!
I hope you are having a happy and productive week!
