I just wanted to share this new piece created as an anniversary gift. I worked from photos of the bridal bouquet, and it's a smallish A5 original drawing with touches of watercolour.
Wow what a great week, I have finished the adult colouring book on Birds of Paradise commissioned by Pictura (Templar Publishing) and started a BEAUTIFUL and romantic new commission for Charbonnel et Walker chocolates.
Term two of my Artist Residency at Royal Holloway University in the Plant Molecular Science Dept finished on Monday (funded by my favourite people at Ted Baker). I am collaborating with scientists to explore the potential of manipulating flowers to reflect my drawings, and even designing a brand new plant! It is the MOST exciting project! On Wednesday I went to meet the super clever cocktail King Ryan Chetiyawardana, A.K.A Mr Lyan at his bar Dandelyan in the Mondrian Hotel on the Southbank. I'm currently exploring fantastical, invented fruits and seeds and wanted to hear what he would desire in a new fruit in terms of texture, taste, aroma and colour. I am still buzzing with ideas generated from the meeting and will be spending today writing up my notes and making sketches!
I hope that you have a wonderful Easter break with the people you love, and lots and lots and lots of chocolate x
