We are taking part in a well dressing project in Malvern. The theme is "The River of Life". I made a photo edit using an image of a river and images of music and television icons that I find inspiring. I also included some words that are important to me in my life. I used different techniques such as masking and filters. I thought how the different images could combine to create an overall picture.
We are creating a river of footprints which has involved making footprints using acrylic paint. I have a very blue foot!

I have looked at some paintings by the artist Marc Chagall and used them to inspire a piece of work about dreams. I have created a mixed up dream landscape by mixing up different areas (sea, desert, farmland). I designed a mythical creature based on two animals that I like and admire; an owl (known for wisdom) and a honey badger (known for courage). I named this creature "animus scientia". The creature is going to be floating across the landscape, a bit like the horse in the Marc Chagall painting.

Inspired by the work of the nineteenth century German artists Paula Modersohn-Becker, I created this landscape painting using acrylic paints. I concentrated on using complementary colours (in this case orange and blue) to create a more dramatic effect. Here is my mood board.
