Cocoons by the light of the moon
Over the last few months whilst I've been exhibiting at shows up and down the country I have had a little spare time to continue my sketchbook work, ready for my new prints for 2013. In particular I have been investigating the tones, shapes, textures, colour and pattern found naturally in all sorts of cocoons and chrysalises. Many were drawn from photographs I had taken over summer from my recent visits to natural history collections.
Below are a few pages from my sketch book, the next stage is to scan and clean up the images ready for development for 2 new square scarves and 4 new long scarves... start sampling!
