I apologise for neglecting this space. I’ve just been immensely busy with the final stretch of my university career… but that doesn’t mean that I’ve stopped being creative in my spare time. Whilst my friends from work demonstrate amazing talent with their musical ability, I on the other hand have rekindled my relationship with my watercolours and my paintbrushes. I’ve also had a slight obsession with painting sunflowers. I blame the Medici family for this. The works that they had collected throughout the Renaissance included a lot of amazing botanical pieces. I was impressed!
So, this is a design that I created over the past couple of weeks. It is meant to be for bedspreads and pillowcases.
This second one is the striped coordinate.
It would be lovely to see them rendered in soft Egyptian cotton.
And here are some progress shots. I’ve missed creating hand-rendered works. And sunflowers make me smile. They’re pretty.
