Flora and Fauna Sketchbook

July 7, 2012

Where ever you look there is something interesting to photograph.

How many times have you strolled through a garden full of texture and color without looking as closely as you would have liked to???   Lack of time, busy schedule or the promise to yourself that you will do it later may be your response.   Last weekend a group of like minded people gathered to photograph, design and share ideas for sketchbooks at Barn House.    The weather co-operated as we took picture after picture of images and patterns. What a magical weekend for us all!   Gail

Getting up as close as possible is important to see details of plant formations.

This butterfly posed for a number of peope in the group. Looking at patterns.

There were vases of plants inside the studio to photograh. Hydrangea is just out and resplendent in yellow green and blue – violet.

Plants under scrutiny develop an alien appearance.

Pressed plants were used for collage. Here are some that I prepared for the class.

Paint and plant material co- exist in collage.

Sketchbook pages are transformed.

Colored pencils and photographic images are explored..

New relationships develop.

Sketchbook pages come to life..

Everyone adds individual touches.
