I used blue for my learning but I realise it is not present in my design source.
I moved on to colour areas of a variety of fabrics using painting, spongeing, printing and rubbings in all the mixed colours. I was able to recreate the red from my original photo which had proved elusive on paper! This technique lends itself well to producing textured, complex colour but it is very difficult to reproduce colours exactly or to produce large areas of colour.
1.6.5I did some more trial colour patches and tried the paints on some more unusual backgrounds. I really liked the textured effect on the crumpled tissue paper.
