Dried flower heads – work in progress

I’m working on some much bigger images at the moment, from drawings I have done of some dried flower heads. The artichoke is from my mum’s ¬†garden and the thistle from my garden. The hydrangea, well, I have to admit that I went out armed with a pair of secateurs one night while walking the dog and snipped it from a neighbour’s garden…..naughty I know, but I don’t have any on my patch. I was just helping a little with their winter pruning, officer.

These are going to be reduction prints and I am planning to do these in more of a sepia tone, echoing the actual faded and dried colours of the flower heads themselves. Although, now I have said that, I may try some bright colours too!
