Leaves seem to be cropping up in my photos a lot...even my sketching.I think their simplicity...but complexity to, is a little kind of wonderful.
The colours in them, the range of shapes and sizes is really extraordinary.
I walk around looking at the ground, finding new pretty ones, and smuggling them home-in handbags, on car seats, nestled in my hand.All ready to be displayed and snapped, admired.Then these little found treasures usually end up on the garden, becoming humous, or maybe stuck in a jar to gather dust and be part of my little nature collections, kept on my desk, on mantlepieces, on top of cupboards- to inspire and admire a little longer.

FEATHER LOVE phase...
tickling my fancy
We spent a few hours drawing from little natural treasures, trees, leaves, and suchlike. Amongst the beauties scattered on the table was a perfect white feather, which I promptly began sketching...
This began a bit of a feather phase, when feathers kept appearing in doodles, drawings and paintings,I began picking them up, seeking them out, and photographing them.
It seems they just tickled my fancy!
