Beginning by analysing Bernd’s colour schemes, everyone designed a simple art-nouveau style letter, subdivided it and painted the spaces. Masking fluid was optional.
|G’s: Lorraine Adam
| B: Ingrid Lotter
Everyone used different sources for their letter forms. Some people “borrowed” a Bernd-colour scheme while others used Bernd’s colours as a starting point for their own colour schemes.

The aim of a course like this is not to emulate a master, but to study and analyse the master’s work, then integrate what has been learnt.
Judy used complemetary colours very sucessfully in this piece.
Jenny Meyer explored the J in lots of different ways and will collate them into a little handmade book.
Pearl de Chalain
It is interesting to see how Pearl and Bev have both used what could be described as green and pink, but while Pearl’s ampersand is elegant and classical and the colours are undestated, bev has decided to go for a completely funky letter, with hot reds and lime green, offset with shocking pink.
The results from this workshop really show how the work of a master can be used as inspiration. I was overwhelmed by the artwork and look forward to displaying the pieces that are not yet complete!
