Mushroom Studies

I brought some button mushrooms and woodland mushrooms from the supermarket, and did some sketches based on them using fine-liner and coloured them with tea and beetroot juice, as I think it would be great if the colours in my piece are from natural resources. I didn’t try to sketch the mushrooms precisely as I wanted the drawings to be loose and free looking, therefore easy to turn into patterns or print for clothing. I cut some of the larger mushrooms to get some different areas to sketch and draw some of the mushroom filaments.
