Yesterday working more with acrylics … playing with simplified colour blocks, scratched ‘negative’ lines, brushed ‘positive lines…next up to think more about left white space as a ‘space making’ device.
Meanwhile in more nature nerd mode I couldn’t quite believe that I was watching a brown argus on my micro meadow .. seemed so unlikely. It was one though, a male. Quite often disturbed by a male common blue (the only other blue around)… I made diligent notes and took photos and it is still there a day later. Another Roesel’s bush cricket too.
