I've been working within these creature's little world (13*16cm) for a while now but I think I've engraved the last tiny line 🤔 This image is based on an oil sketch I made of a wonderful watercolour by Detmold in a book on insects. I always loved the subject matter... peeking into the depths of a wasps nest. I couldn't believe my luck this Autumn when tidying up a little ledge where I keep some herbs in pots I found remains of the most beautiful tiny egg sized wasps nest built around ivy leaves... 😊 The architecture inside is just incredible and I can tell where in the garden it has got its nest building materials from because of the different coloured stripes. This is on my list to attempt a wood engraving. Just carried out a tree census of my garden and counted 20 trees🙃 They are all in pots some very large some smaller because of the small scale of the space... but I think rewilding is happening 😎 #wasps #waspsnest #rewilding #rewildingbritain #rewildingconcrete #nature #woodengraving #societyofwoodengravers #artfinderartist #wasps #insects #woodengraversnetwork @societyofwoodengravers @woodengraversnetwork @societyofgraphicfineart @artfinder_com
