Hilary Hollingworth - artist

Drawing

Drawing for design is drawing for a purpose. Drawing with the purpose in mind and adapting the style and method to the end product helps. Draw as you stitch, draw your work in progress to help you to see where a piece should go next. Hilary often starts from one of her own photographs, taken when travelling, as a starting point for a drawing.
