Here is my inspiration from Amanda Ho who sent me photographs for Pics to Picks. I saw these and wished I had sent photos of my own to Esmae, my addressee for this project. Amanda's photos have such beautiful subtle colors- green moss, grey cement, blue-green-grey shadows... and the repetition of pattern! abstracted, striped, curved. There is so much to work with here! I am off to visit my seaside hometown this weekend, so I hope to sketch a bit out by the beach with its similarly muted shades and salty air.
