Studio Latest: A peek in my sketchbook

 

Hello, I hope you're enjoying the sunshine. (Or if not, you've found somewhere wonderfully cool and shady to hide!) I have to confess it's been a little bit too warm for me, and we've only seen the cat about twice during daylight hours over the last fortnight; it really isn't the time to be going around in a black fur coat!

I've started exploring ideas for a new collection, so I thought I'd share a little peek inside my sketchbook. At the moment I'm fascinated by the idea of light through leaves and papery seed pods; layering up translucent colour to create abstracted botanical patterns. As always though, it starts with drawings.
