This piece has been sitting on my desktop since last week and waiting to be finished. It’s my second attempt to illustrating with reference (birds of paradise in particular for this one) and i can say it’s my newest obsession!
Pink Martini music on, brush strokes on brush strokes and a little bit of sunshine, made this morning magical. Ever since the year changed, i decided to make a few more changes in my life and daily routine, that i’ll be sharing on tomorrows post with you. One of the things i focused on, was to concentrate a little bit more on the things i love designing, and what makes my heart skip a bit. It’s so easy to get distracted as a creative with all the trends, and with what’s “in”. So i went back to the beginning and discovered that i need a little bit more magic in my creative life.
So here it is, my first, close to my heart personal piece for this year. I kinda have this thing with birds now, and as always golds, stars and moons. You can see a little of the making of, of this piece on my Instagram stories today too! Lots and lots of brush strokes to create these feathers. I know you’ve been asking for more process, so i’ll do my best to update there my daily works.
