The last image is for interest as it reminds me of Janet Edmonds workshop at summer school last summer. My husband met this artist at a modelling shoot where her husband was the photographer.
The next series of pictures shows some ideas based on the maple tree in my garden in the autumn.
Next I tried to represent images and objects using a variety of media.
The next 3 images are based on a magazine photo which I liked for the shapes and the colours.
I love the next design of the seed heads (not strictly trees!) and found a photo of a teapot with a similar design.
At last I have managed to pick a theme and start! I have chosen trees locally to start with but I may have to expand in the future to include other plants. Whilst dithering I did manage to take some decent photos in the autumn and this winter. I am posting pictures of my sketchbook to start with. Probably too many pages but its taken me a while to get over my inertia and relearn how to use blogger! Hope you like them..
