Last Summer I was visiting Seneca Rocks visitors center during an exhibit of Chair Caning. Of course, I was more interested in the fellow who was doing the caning rather than the product he produced, but it was fascinating to watch. I was particularly interested in his hands that bent and stretched the strips, and imagined that each intricate seat he produced was something he had labored over and put himself into as he created it.
While I learned new techniques for landscapes at the WVWS workshop, I am keeping to my own technique of building layers for my portraits.
I'll keep you posted on the progress, an hope to have this one done for the Forest Festival.
I think it is important to share our process with others, just as we gain from watching other artists work.
