Inspiration : Nature

Inspiration : Nature

Inspiration finds me at odd moments. I usually try to carry my camera with me to catch these moments, but sometimes I just have to remember. A lot of times, it is a colour that I will notice that I want to try to replicate. Or maybe the way the light is hitting a leaf or branch. Or maybe I just want to see what happens when I dribble some ink on the paper and take a roller over it, and I can enjoy the randomness and chaos of the results. I also really like macro photography, and try to take macro photos of my work-in-progress, to really see what is happening at the inner levels of the painting.
