Pretty in Pink, digital image on german etching paper, A3 size by 

From a series of work of 10 and growing. For the subject matter I explored my back garden and the wetlands and fields at the back of my house for ideas. It was in this very space I came across a whole area of trees whose branches and leaves are enveloped in spider webs so thick that they seem impenetrable. Grabbing camera and dog, I proceeded to take many pictures of this phenomenon as a starting point. It was interesting to observe whilst taking the pictures that many dog walkers had not noticed them up until this moment even though they walk under them every day. There was a lot of squirming going on. I decided to have some fun. In this mode I revisited some photos I took of a huntsman and her young which had just hatched in a large dry tree husk, a great find whilst clearing the garden.
