Finding textures in nature


I recently took a trip to Dartmoor and photographed some Lichen and Moss growing on twigs.

As much as I love wide expansive landscapes I can’t help but become obsessed by the tiny details found in nature. I love the forms and shapes of Lichen as it twists around branches.

These details, although maybe unseen by many, inspire my own artwork and more than anything, help me to practice noticing.

Weekend challenge

This weekend, if you are out in nature; a local park or even your own garden. Look closely at the details. See if you can find and photograph unusual textures and shapes.

Share with me in the comments or over on Instagram #texturesinnature I’d love to see!

And if you want to learn more about unleashing your creative side, then my new courses could be just the thing for you!
