Inspired by nature
"‘So beautiful it looked like a stained glass window”"Whilst walking last autumn, I passed a hedge rows that was so beautiful it looked like a stained glass window. I took a photo hoping to find a way of incorporating it into my artwork. After several sketches and fiddles I decided that pen and ink allowed me to show the transparency of the glass I could see in my head. The hares seemed to naturally appear as I drew organically. After finishing the piece I photographed it as normal and I wondered what would happen if I played with the colour on an editing program. I’m rather pleased with the results.
People are inspired by all types of things, but it’s hard to keep it all in your head. If you like it, photograph it, keep it as a reference.
