I like the lines..the random shape and size. I was intending on doing dots but the 'bleed' from the lines was more effective.It reminds me of rain. These are washed with tea and not coffee and the overall colour is cleaner than the coffee which was a little murky in places.
Some where along the line I started doing lines (excuse the pun!) A while ago I started doing barcodes to represent society (before the nests...) and this reminds me of one. However...this is was actually inspired by the life giving veins that leave delightful ridges on a leaf's surface.Leaves have a double appeal for me...visually they're works of art and the textures are so beautiful to touch. The act of rubbing a leaf is so grounding for me and it speaks directly to my creative spirit.
You can see from the photo below some of the ideas I played with. I think I will be coming back to the tree idea at some stage too!
