Doodling from Nature

I have been doing a spot of doodling from my sketchbook studies using pen and ink, pencil and my sewing machine. The ideas came from the effects bugs have on leaves. I love the marks they make when they eat into a leaf. It is fascinating the different marks left in the leaves creating varying patterns and textures.

  1. Thanks -- this is very instructive! I like seeing all the incarnations of a work of art. Can't wait to see what it morphs into.
