Nest Building

On Tuesday I spent a few hours with John in Hirst Wood experimenting with making a nest structure.

I don't think the green wellies give this the right look and it is rather out of focus. But this was an experiment to see if I could create a nest-like structure large enough for me to curl up in - the idea being to create a portrait that describes how I feel about the woodland; protected, at home, etc. I suppose you could say it is like a woodland womb - but I think that sounds a bit weird.

This was a first try, a sketch perhaps, to try the idea out. I would like to work on this until I feel I can put together a fully fledged work.
