SEEDS, A BATIK INSPIRATION

I have always been fascinated by seeds of any kind. I have painted sweetcorn and pumpkin seeds in the past and now beans. Beans are particularly interesting as a childhood memory. I remember we used to harvest them and begin a tedious task of removing them from their pods into the source-pan. At the end of the process I used to be and actually I'm still amazed by a great scene of beans of different shapes and colors together in one place. It tends to appear like a fashion competition with each one showing off with the best color. My great lesson with this subject is that despite the variety in color and shape, one thing still remains and that is their nature as beans.
