New Prints

_1140335

Over the last few years I’ve really come to appreciate the seasons a lot more, and find myself constantly on the look out for interesting plants and fruits that I might be able to capture down on paper. I’ve been doing a lot of walking and have been making mental notes of where the best apple trees, blackberry brambles and figs are – not just for drawing either of course!

In the last months I’ve started a collection of drawings which I’m calling ‘Series of Five’, inspired by this interest in the changing seasons, and picking up from where I began with this drawing of Oysters I did for A Better Place Journal.

I finally got round to getting some prints ordered, which you can now buy from my etsy shop. It was fun taking some stylised photos of my prints with a new-old camera that I bought recently.

The camera I bought is a Panasonic Lumix G1, from 2010. I bought it second hand as I was looking for something cheap and fairly basic for a beginner like myself. It’s been really great so far, and I’m looking forward to getting to know it better.

I’m looking forward to seeing what I can get down on paper as Autumn rolls in!
