Another layer in the recesses of my mind
is wondering how to stitch the ripples and reflections
of a rain filled puddle.
What fascinates me here is the transition from perfect circles
to the broken messy reflection of a vertical tree trunk.
Recreating water would not be my intent
though the character of those flowing lines and shapes could never be lost.
So many levels of line and shape are captured in water....
from underlying currents to rippling surface disturbances,
from the shapes of things in and under the water to...
a million reflections of everything around and above that water.
Perhaps too much 'white noise' but so many possible stitchings.
What interests me in this one is the wake from the beaver
breaking the straight lines of the woodland reflections.
I will be isolating bits and enlarging bits,
until this Penny drops!
