spring

11.69" x 8.27"
watercolour, ink and gouache

There's always something fascinating about bright and vibrant colours, and flowers or nature itself that I just to paint it. So this artwork was done as a dedication to the arrival of spring. 

I originally did a sketchbook drawing for Inktober 2015, and because I loved it so much, I just knew that I had to turn it into an official finished artwork. This created the problem of transferring the original drawing onto the new surface since it could potentially lose the element I initially loved about the image. And this did happen along the way. So it took three tries and one failed artwork to finally achieve the aesthetic and style I had imagined to make this piece come alive.
