Cardoon Seedheads – Colour & Form Exploration

Based on my drawings of cardoon seedheads blogged here; I have been exploring colour and form with the intention of taking this subject into a linocut print. I really enjoyed making these explorations in gouache and oil pastel. Each image has provided a texture or shape or colour combo that I like.
