A Stipa sketchbook

I enjoy exploring the expressive potential of natural objects  –  grasses, seaweed, pebbles etc  –   sometimes isolating them from their background, sometimes changing their context or, maybe, increasing or diminishing colour saturation or other tonal adjustments.

Among my favourite subjects is the flowering seedhead of the tall stipa gigantea, a grass with elegant six foot wands that sway with the breeze in late summer and early autumn

 

Sometimes the rotation of an image can suggest a change of character.
