Drawing inspiration

These little sketches are for my thinking of how to proceed for my 'Margaret Olley at the Tweed Gallery' inspired pieces. My art group Broadstrokes has put in a submission for an exhibition at the Warwick Art Gallery to show this work so I am working towards this. I have been reading a biography on Margaret Olley and it is fascinating, she certainly led a very full life. In one phrase she mentions being in her home studio at an old hat factory like being cocooned in a burrow when life's sadnesses were mounting up for her. So my mind went with the image of being cocooned with a burrowing creature.
