The 'Blue spot' series of images was initiated by the photographs I took around Stamford in south Lincolnshire. From the winter of 2014 through to January 2016, I would photograph and then draw specific visual elements that captured my attention - very similar in approach to the 'Red Berries' series of images. The dark blue-ish/black spots on the leaves changed over time, weathering and shiny in the rain. They have feel of decay yet with a sense of freedom when the wind whisks them up, a gentle movement until they find their new resting place. I wanted the movement to be an important element in this series of images in both the composition and in the colours, like a butterfly on the wing.
Blue spot no.1 is a digital collage made from original photographs which have been altered/manipulated. These have been layered along with pencil drawing.
