Taking photos in Oxfords Botanical Gardens has helped me to develop my ideas about using colours found in nature to inspire my wools. I believe many of the photos I have taken have the potential to become colour ways for my wools.
The contrast between the cool mint green and the warm browny-red in this photograph is very striking.
I love the way the flushed pink leaves stand out against the deep brown soil.
The way the vibrant pink bleeds into the pure white at the tips of the petals makes for a very soft, clean colour palette.
The crisp browns in this photo are successfully eye-catching.
I love the bright pinky red of this rhubarb.
The contrast between the dark brown and purplish red in this photo is very exciting.
I am really interested in the contrast between the cool minty green and rich, vivid purple.
