I draw alot of my inspiration from wildlife from flowers, insects, trees and leaves. There is such a huge variety of plants, their colours ranging from bold and brash pinks and oranges to more softer and dusky violets, whites and greens. The shapes and patterns of the leaves are lovely to draw too. This summer I've been snapping away at some flowers on my vegatable patch. I love marigolds - not only are they useful in the garden protecting plants and attracting insects but they also have beautiful flower heads and leaves which are interesting to draw. I am planning to create some lino cuts from some of the photos I've taken.
