Group: The Calligraphy Society of Victoria Place: Melbourne Victoria AUSTRALIA Date: this past weekend November 2015 Theme: Purely Pencils - a two-day workshop It is always rewarding to see the what class participants create by the end of a workshop. This class was no exception. Unfortunately many of my photos were blurred, which is unlike me, so I can't show a full representation of the group, what I can show are these excellent results. It is the nature of the pencil, be it H, B or other to demand a slow and consistent amount of time and effort to create little finished works. Most of the work here therefore, is unfinished. This exercise is called from Nature to Paper. It is an exercise I developed to show people how easy it is to create a colour scheme from a small snippet from the garden. People are astounded just how many colours, tints and shades can be found in just one small plant. But, the beauty is, it works!
