Inspiration board/ Essence
When we study something we get to learn more about that, this is the nature of everything. In the same manner, we get inspired by the things that we think are interesting. While studying the art of marble inlay I found out some awesome inspirations which left me awe-inspired. Some of the essence that I derived from inspirations are Symmetry, geometry, balance and insertion. Below is the inspiration board that I have created from images that I thought are inspiring for my art.

As we can see that in the above image, pieces of stones are inlaid in the marble in an absolute symmetry.
We can see the example of geometry and balance that is created in the above image.
From the imagery research of inspirations, I now started sketching and working on essence on my sketchbook.
