Cressida Campbell's patterns in trees

A lovely segue from my previous two Blogs about looking for patterns in nature is to introduce you to Cressida Campbell’s work. Many of her works illustrate the intricate patterns in our trees and plants.
And here is a little five minute task for you. Try copying the pattern in one of the trees I have shown either today or in yesterday's Blog. Just the pattern, not the colour. Each shape is slightly different just like snowflakes. No one shape is exactly the same as another. And if you have the inclination, time and tools you can try replicating the colours or for fun invent your own colours. If you would like to see more of Cressida Campbell's work here is a link. Look for the shapes she has used to create her compositions.
