Here are a few of my recent sketchbook drawings.
Firstly this amazing pebble that I snapped with the camera while dog walking on the beach. The detailed patterning is really interesting and provides a whole range of shapes that could be used to create designs for stitching.
While enjoying sitting outside at a coffee shop a large (5cm long body) beetle buzzed by and landed briefly next to us. I managed to snap a quick shot before it flew away. The beetle had lovely markings on the wing carapaces and the colours varied from a limey green through to yellowy orange.
At another coffee shop (yes, I do enjoy my coffee’s out!) there were high tables and stools. The legs made interesting lines crossing over each other and I thought they might be a good subject for a later printing exercise.
