I'm posting a photo of Guillemot eggs from The Learning Centre - the colour varies tremendously apparently. I'm continuing today to develop work with an element of the 'Guillemot blue' as seen in the egg I found a couple of days ago. The painting here is just beginning to be built up - and it's focus is the Hawthorn and Blackthorn bushes wind - bent on the exposed slopes. I went on the morning patrol with Ranger Katie Black who mentioned the way in which the form of the bushes is influenced by their orientation: South side grows and greens more. The contours of the Hawthorn bush we had paused to ponder perfectly demonstrated the plant's dependence on light.
This digital platform offers a forum for me to reflect further on what informs my material practice.
