Shapes and patterns in the natural world can be a source of inspiration for artists and designers. In the photograph Chambered Nautilus by Edward Weston, the dominant feature is the spiralling form twisting apart. Could you investigate forms in the natural world to inspire your outcome?

The changing seasons bring about events such as animals emerging from hibernation in spring, falling leaves in the autumn or severe storms and high tides in winter. Sometimes these events combine to create amazing scenes of colour and drama, which might provide you with an interesting starting point for your work.

The beginning and end of life are expressed in art and design in many ways. Could birth or death observed in the natural world be a source of inspiration for your response?

Exploring the visual impact of land or buildings broken apart by extreme weather, erosion, decay or other natural forces could help you to develop your ideas.

Peter Markham Scott’s painting Nenes on Mauna Loa, Hawaii depicts a flock of geese in flight. The positioning of the geese in the painting creates a dramatic composition. Could visual research and recording of groups of living things provide you with ideas for your response?
