Day 8 - Drawing September
8 September 2014, 18:13

This month I am taking part in a month of drawing, posting images every day. The first of today's images is a study of a mason wasp nest in pencil. The nest was given to me after the inhabitants had moved on! In contrast to the nest I drew last week, it is much smaller in scale and more delicate - the hexagonal cells being only about 1cm in depth, compared to 2cm in the first nest. The cells number in the tens, rather than the thousands. Both had been meticulously made out of paper pulp. In this image I have tried to capture the exquisite striations and patterns.

The second image, in acrylic, is an idea I had for a card and possibly a stained glass window, with a Celtic influence. I wanted to give an shot of colour!
