A Peek Into Studio B

Our bird illustration workshop Sunday was at the Davis Art Center. Next door to our classroom was the weaving studio, Studio B. It was unoccupied, so I poked my nose in. Hundreds of weaving bobbins were on the shelves in the studio, the yarns arranged in color order forming a very pretty sight.

Once again I’ve gotten fascinated by color and its mysteries. But my peek into that room reminds me why I am much more interested in drawing and watercolor painting than color photography — it seems such a hard problem to photographically capture the color in that room and make a successful print of it. Why not just work directly and apply pigment on brush to paper?
