Yesterday I was looking at my euphorbia photo and thinking how I would like to represent the colours in it. Trouble with me is when I look at something like that my brain says 'Flower!' and that's all I can see. When I was at college they used to get us to deconstruct things and look at them in a different way, make photocopies, rip them up and put them back together a different way , focus in on one spot and enlarge it - standard art school stuff. I was wondering how I could do that at home and started messing with my photo software. My euphorbia pic ended up looking like this:



















Now you may be saying, 'Pah! I've been doing that for ages - kids stuff' but I'm really excited. Look at all those colours! I certainly didn't see them before. I really want to use nature as an inspiration for my work and now it's going to be much simpler.

*sharp intake of breath* Is it cheating?!

Do you do it as well? Phew - lol I really am my own worst enemy - I come up with something helpful and then think of reasons why I shouldn't do it. Dozy cow *rolls eyes @ self*
