Went to Tate Britain archive today- inspiring stuff!!
Inspired me so much I had an urge to draw. I have created this drawing using an ornament of a fairy for initial sketches. I wanted to make it have a dream quality so emphasised certain features and left parts out.

I have decided to do more watercolours of Jupiter and different nebulas to capture the patterns and colours. I have then decided to make a masking tape bowl inspired by the patterns of Jupiter. This didn't work out as I wanted it to be because it needs a wire structure inside to support it. I could produce it in clay instead as I could still get the desired patterns.

I've been reading about aesthetics for the past few days whilst trying to keep sane. Also helped out at Southampton City Art Gallery- it was great to see a room transformed throughout the day.
Here is a recent drawing I've done. It's of Jupiter and I was trying to capture the movement and organic quality of it. The original idea was to have something tactile, so emboss the patterns in to the paper, but I could do this with metal/ tin-foil instead to get the required quality.
