Seed pods in focus

Staying with the theme of seed pods the mixed media crew focused intently to draw 'what they saw'.

Each artist had their own pod which they examined closely and then drew with a graphite pencil.
Once complete the selection of one coloured pencil each, added to the drawing. Finally the board was flipped over and a part of the seed pod was 'amplified', like looking through a magnifying glass. With surprise different shapes and textures were seen.

Here are a couple of pieces, with the actual seed pods along side.

 The pods in their entirety.
The opening of the pod amplified.

Many pods... to...

Looking again takes us up close.
