Looking back at old drawings, I did this in April last year. The tree shapes are in our net curtains. I quite like this because it’s a simple way of adding pattern… I’m doing an ‘in/inside’ drawing for a prompt tomorrow. Might play with the idea of inside looking out…..
When you live next to a road, without a front garden, you need something to obscure people views of the inside of your home. I mean, if it was a show home it might be different, but I’m messy when it comes to life. I’ve got lots of art materials and canvases so you can imagine.. I have a studio at Spode, but in winter it’s too cold to use.
Anyway I used to have lovely net curtains, with cat patterns on them, but they got clawed by my new cats, so these are stronger, less easy to damage. The cats still climb on the windowledge and look out, half the time they pull the net curtains along with them, so I’m constantly having to straighten them up…. Like a nosy neighbour twitching their curtains!
