I've just completed week one and explored the concept of art helping us to visualise scientific data - looking at the hidden world. On a wonderful, but time consuming wander through amazing photograohic magnifications, I stumbled across the former biologist Robert Rock Belliveau, who on retiring started taking amazing magnified photos of fruit and vegetables. There's a great article here.
Throughout June, I have also been participating in a challenge to create a daily direct watercolour, that is a painting without any under drawing. More info here. Combining that with this course, I created this direct watercolour painting from a magnified image of a corn husk with silk from an image by Robert Rock Belliveau. (sorry the photo has lost some of the vividness of the original)
