Papillons de nuit - A preliminar sketch

I like the idea of quite delicate and fragile night butterflies, angular and stylised, flocking to the light. Masses of delicate little creatures fluttering in a still around a bare desolate light source - industrial and minimal in it's existance. I would like to capture an essence of movement and fragility towards a simple light source.

The aim is to achieve a sculptural light that is both poetic yet raw at the same time. In this sketch I wanted to see how the thin wings could be constructed to capture movement and to observe how light was conveyed through the graphic.

'Papillions de nuit' is a theme that I'd like to extend into a collection of jewellery..... for the night.
