Thistle me this
One early afternoon after visiting Luana and Sophie Rubin at EQuilter in Boulder, I spied a little grove of teasels along a drainage ditch next to a back road. Of course I had to immediately pull over and take some pictures- I was very familiar with the hard dried brown seed pods commonly used in flower arrangements, but seeing them in their wild fresh new growth was new to me.
I'm going to use their basic forms for my repetition challenge, contrasting their harsh pokiness with a rhythmic overlaid pattern.
as always, I start with drawing......
