I have been working on a series of trees and their seeds, see Seed Play on my website for finished work. Currently I am working on the Eastern Hemlock that has wonderful seed pods that look like little roses.
From the specimen, I made a series of sketches of the Eastern Hemlock to create a design.
Once the small design is completed, I have it enlarged to full size at Kinko’s. Then I make freezer paper templates to use in inking on a design. Inking is underway for the needles. More cutting of templates will be done tomorrow.
