Conplex constructions

It seems that every few months or so, that something about this plant (crown of thorns) catches my attention. Is this what’s called an ‘artist’s muse’? Anyway, it has a recurring interest.

This time, it’s the complexity of the structure of the flower. It’s an interesting exercise to look at the one object from its various angles.

The final background is a layer of ink over a layer of watercolour washes of leaves and thorns. It’s a process to get to the heart of what you actually want to focus on.
