Circular theme

It has been a while since I last blogged, if you have been following Jilly's blog you will have a pretty good idea why I haven't made it up to Black Middens in recent weeks! I have been looking into the history of colour, how it was organised in colour charts throughout the ages and early understandings of optics.

There is certainly a circle thing going on.

The next map drawing I am going to make will follow this, I plan to place Black Middens in the centre of the piece and work on a radiating theme.

I am also really interested in the rainbow as something simple but magical in relation to ideas about colour and also weather systems.

I captured some tiny 'rainbows' when I was taking small videos back in September the still images aren't too impressive but I think there might be something to develop with this.
