Sketching ideas....

Back in the summer (which seems a very long time ago with all this wind & rain) I had ideas about developing a range of work inspired by the sculptures of Barbara Hepworth.  I visited the sculpture garden here in St Ives & took several photographs concentrating on sections of the pieces.

The inspiration.....
 
So today I've made a start on some sketch idea generation, I'm looking for simple forms which I can translate into metal panel sections for wall hangings.  At the moment I'm thinking this work would suit the verdigris & bronzed copper finishes....







It might be a while before these develop further but I've made a start!

If you are wondering where the 'Book a week' is this week - I'm still reading the Barbara Hepworth one (probably what prompted me to start on this!) so I'll aim to start another book next week.
