Welcome back to Timelapse Tuesday! I’ve been on a concept sketch kick along with my spring flower since I’ve returned to my paints, particularly my oils and gouache. Ever since getting my Toned paper book, I’ve been practicing my light modeling and tones so I can eventually transfer them to their proper supports and focus on the colors.
I wanted to play around with geometric motifs with flowers imposed upon them in a fun juxtaposition of forms for my illustrations. I like the concept of the language of flowers and how they’re associated with different cultures and meanings. For me, they provide hidden meaning along with the aesthetic elements. I also wanted to see how my gold pen would look on the paper.
I want to have a series of finished illustrations and paintings by summertime to start making prints. I’ve been thinking of releasing prints of my Shop, not just through RedBubble. I’m thinking of going for 7″ x 5″, 10″ x 8″ and 14″ x 11″ with some embellishments, like golden & silver inks. What do you think: which illustration do you like the most?
