These two ‘abstract’ patterns are derived from photos of seaweed attached to a breakwater and exposed only at low water. I was attracted by the variety of shapes, colours and textures.

Some of the ‘seaweed doodles’ are figurative in character, such as those below.
It is worth repeating that nothing has been added to these images and nothing removed – other than the sand! Removing the colour and texture of the sand gives clarity to the shapes. A little colour saturation has sometimes been used for artistic purposes. All of the photos were taken in the small Periglis Bay on the island of St Agnes in the Isles of Scilly.
