I've got the jungle fever. My mind is on a balmy adventure, it's filtering in to my home, I want to wear it, I want to draw it and I just cant go past a plant shop without popping in.
Departed from my previous pastel toned work - I am now thirsty for lush, rich jewel tones, deep shadows and saturation. It makes sense really, other than my sherbet hair colour I surround myself with vibrant decor, bold toned clothing, and am grooming myself into a pretty damn good greenthumb (if I may say so myself). Finally I seem to have the confidence to incorporate my environmental palette into my work, and I am very excited about this progression.
I recently decided to sit down and challenge myself to some parrots, primarily to show some much needed diversity in my folio, but also because I am really enjoying building colour and depth at the moment. I shared step by step progress on my
and this is the final result.
I thought that perhaps creating the parrots would satisfy my bold hued jungle urges, but then I was pulled back to its depths by this ruby toned cuff, call it research?
