Developing on a initial inspiration and developing a theme
I am often asked about how I create my work so I thought that I would share some of my creative processes. The inspiration for this series started life with a photograph of the undergrowth in my garden.
For the initial image I drew inspiration from the shapes and colors wishing to develop and enhance these to create a work that inspired a imaginary magical world revealing hidden characters within.
For this second piece I was inspired to create a work inspiration. I started the process by placing a transparent paper on the top of the painting I then drew around the shapes that appealed to me, I then replicated the section as a mirror image joining the sections together to create a new starting point for my next design.
For the final piece I was then inspired to use color to place further emphasis on different sections thus creating my leaves design.
