An original marker on mix media artboard measuring 12" x 16".

This is my first flower study piece, another iteration of trying to focus on the process more than the outcome. I've always been a huge fan of Mucha and wanted to practice replicating some of his flowers in marker since I've been seeing a lot of cool flower tattoos recently.

I started with the black and silver sharpie framework, relying on my intuition to tell me where and how to place the sections. Then I copied the flowers in pencil, before outlining them and adding the stripes in the background to provide some structure.

It reminds me of a fertile womb - the origin of the world (a la Courbet). #girlpower

I had a lot of fun making this piece and I am thrilled with the result. Please, enjoy!
