Field of trees - Sketches

Here i am about to do something I've not yet done. It is true that I've shown some sketches of 'work in progress' before...but I'd like to show you my thinking in sketchbook form as I seek to compose and settle on the next piece.Please be aware that nothing at this stage is definite and is fluid..there will probably be quite a few more sketches ..I usually play around with a series of images varying the size and placement of the components. So you should see the development in sketch form as I approach something I can work with. I once sketched a woman holding out her hand and releasing a cloud of butterflies..I like this as a concept...I also like red hair...I will base the picture's background using colours and elements from the Minipix: 'Field of trees'.

I also thought I'd let you know that tomorrow Jan, Annie and I will be going to London to meet Preeti , author of 'Just A Mother Of Two ' We have written to each other on a daily basis for some time..my daughter Annie also writes to Preeti's daughter often. So we have special permission to take Annie out of school for the day. I feel incredibly honoured as this is the first time Preeti has travelled outside India. It is something I will treasure and hold dear as have come to realise the richness of culture and experience represented by the wonderful people I've met through blogging. there are certain individuals I've come to regard as friends who although scattered around the world are as real and valuable to me as if they lived next door.
So I'll sign off with this salute...
To all the diversity, oddness,eccentricities, warmth,humour, support, love and richness there is to find in the human heart across the world,I salute you all!

I have enjoyed your tree compositions wherein the clouds appear to be leaves; I see this might be part of the next piece--wonderful!

I found your blog via Preeti's blog. Enjoy your day together!

How wonderful to get the chance to see the concept emerging from the initial sketches and ideas. I look forward to seeing the picture take form.

I couldn't agree more with your sentiments about blog friends. I do hope your day with Preeti is a fabulous one for all of you, as I am sure it will be. I have yet to meet a blog friend but I hope to soon!
