Sketchbook Project 2014 Organised Chaos (page 9) Shapes

P9shapesSml

What do footballs and bees have in common?  Hexagons.   I was thinking about how the same shapes keep cropping up in nature.  This page shows the humble hexagon in the bee’s honeycomb and Buckminsterfullerene (truncated icosahedron)  or C60 – no I didn’t draw a football.  I used acrylics paints mostly and some pencils and oil pastels to add highlights.
