Jurien Bay looking north

Our family has just returned from a week in Jurien Bay, a small coastal town 2  & 1/2 hours drive north of Perth. It was a great chance for reading, swimming,  walking, relaxing and thinking about the year ahead.

I took the opportunity to catch up on my textile magazines and finish reading “Interaction of Colour” by Joseph Albers. Written in 1963 and recommended by Kerr Grabowski in her DVD on Deconstruction Printing, it was a great revision on how we perceive colours. Said Albers – “In visual perception a colour is almost never seen as it really is – as it physically is. This fact makes colour the most relative medium in art”  This book was a good end to the colour project.
