Flower Dress Lady
During my time in the painting workshop I became interested in pattern. I was inspired by the image on the left which I found in a magazine. Initially I was attracted to the models curving body which produces shape. However I thought it would also be appealing to form the dress into pattern as well. This provoked me into the idea of patterning everyday objects. I created this piece on hard white board, using acrylic paints. It was quite difficult to find a fine brush which was petite enough to form the swirling patterns.
