This is a new collection called Bee-Lines.
I had fun creating aimless marks and seeing where it took me. It reminded me of squadrons of bees in motion, or if you want to get philosophical about it, the busywork of our boxed-in, human lives. Head down, bum up, with little time for anything else.
Patterns are from left to right: Bee-Lines, Sidetracks, Peaky Flyers, Hive and Settle Petal.
This was a fantastic prompt. I’d not done anything remotely abstract and it was fun to just make marks without any strict subject material. Once again I picked bright colours, departing from my typical muted palettes.
