I spent a great morning last Tuesday being shown behind the scenes at the Oxford Natural History Museum. Getting up close and personal to the collections of British moths and beetles. So as you can imagine I have a vast amount of resource material to work from now. Consequently I have a number of sketch book pages underway. I have posted
a few in various states. Non of them are anywhere near complete, but it gives you some idea of how I build up these drawings.
A quick list of techniques used here, gum arabic transfer, photo copy/magazine and acrylic transfer, white acrylic paint drawing, indian ink washes, bleached Quink ink, label collage and a sneaky bit of pencil drawing.
