The Street

I started by taking photos of a walk home from the city - lots of interest to be found.  I love the light that hits Glasgow in the spring.

This led to a lot of drawing... I developed a few shapes that started to recur.  I liked the gridlike patterns of railings and netting particularly.

 I was thinking of etching some of these patterns into enamelled copper, but it soon became clear that they didn't show up well on the samples I had.  I tried the bolder images, but they still didn't show clearly enough - the pattern was only just visible under light, but it had only etched the shiny surface of the enamel away.
