Harnessing the Beauty of Autumn

Autumn is here, and it has to be my favourite season.  This is because it offers such a rich visual experience to any artist.   A variety of warm earth tones and crinkled textures from the fallen leaves completely seduce my imagination every year.  Therefore, last September I embarked on my biggest doll making journey yet, a where a feast of colours, indulged my imagination to create a range of autumnal inspired textile dolls.

 

Capturing the Colours of Fall

As the green hues of summer fade into a distant memory, As the leaves slowly fall, The Goddess of Autumn, How you seduce us with your rich earth tones.

Trees With Body Forms

The Persian Ironwood tree, which I regularly walk past in the beautiful Bournemouth Upper Gardens, puts on a spectacular show of colour every year.  However, this tree provides further intrigue, as its trunks and branches twist and distort to create the most unusual shapes.  There are many of these magnificent trees, that line the edge of the path that meanders through the Gardens.

As the leaves drop, I started to notice how the trunks of the trees reminded of some the belly dance moves I have been interested in.

Goddess Dolls from Drawing to Making

After dabbling with body shapes using tree trunks and dance postures I had a breakthrough with this sketch.  The antlers were also inspired by belly dance costumes.
