    Hey! I'm doing GCSE Art (AQA) and I have a theme of natural/mechanical.
    I started in about october time, but haven't done much. Here's what I've done:

    Artist studies - Georgia O'keefe - did a silk painting of one of her flower work and photos
    - Andrew Chase - just drew one of his work from photos - any ideas to expand?

    Then looked at human body - because its natural yet pretty mechanical - drew some drawings from the photos

    thought of a few initial ideas - tree form a heart, flowers carved into skull, heart and lungs intaglio
    developed heart and lungs intaglio into series of 3 = normal heart and lung - normal with a bit of mechanical parts then completely mechanical.
    (Also dissected a pigs heart and lung to see the details.

    But... my sketchbook looks very boring and controlled, any tips and ideas how to make it more interesting? and tips to develop my final piece and possibly add flowers to link it to georgia o'keefe?

    Thank you!

    Also, my interpretation is that the mechanical world is slowly but will eventually take over the natural world and also that humans deteriorate as they age so need to get natural things replaced e.g. heart valves, metal hips etc.
