Alongside my floral theme, I’m researching various types of animals to incorporate with the theme, focusing specifically on texture. The Chameleon was drawn as a reflection on obscure wildlife with beautiful skins, colour and textures.
Sorry that I’be been away folks, Christmas time was manic! Making a fresh start on drawings for my latest live project to design a series of scarves for Liberty of London! Cool or what? Anyway, I decided to look at more analytical drawings, with the added touch of my quirky edge to it. This was drawn from an exotic plant I purchased in Ikea, as my theme is obscure florals this plant fit perfectly. Because the flower was made up of so many shades and tones I really wanted to overexaggerate the colour. Hope you like, let me know what you think!
As the first project revolved around ‘bloom’ I wanted to draw something a little unusual, so I looked at exotic flowers and plants. I believe with this genre you can get very bright coloured flowers and unusual shaped flowers, all the better for drawing.
