This is ‘Reconstructed Nature IV’ which I put together today having found the final piece – the yellow leaf – whilst out walking Maddie the dog this morning. I’d picked up the other leaves from the garden a couple of days ago and had an idea of the sort of image that I wanted to make but felt it needed something to add to the regimented layout I was thinking of. The yellow leaf gives a contrast of colour, shape and size and is a bit of a cliché I know but sometimes a pattern needs a break in it to make it stronger and draw attention to itself.
