Paste Paper with Madeleine Durham

Two hot, very hot, days in Sunnyvale, and we Pacific Scribers were so excited to learn to make the beautiful papers that Madeleine produces, it was OK. She taught her techniques in a very organized and understandable way. She had lots of different designs she shared with us and, as a colorist, she would whip up something beautiful in 5 minutes.  It's the swing and sway of the brush, with control of course, that is the secret. It intrigued me that I would put two colors together, that I probably wouldn't usually, and produce a nice piece. It was so much fun but exhausting because of the high temperatures of the day.

This is just half of what I made.
