I spent the last couple days working on a new piece titled In the Garden. After receiving some feedback that people would like to see my work feature more women, I decided to deliver. In the Garden is a piece I hope translates to represent serenity and beauty. After sketching the image, I took a break to decide the color scheme, which was ultimately determined by what came next – the flowers. I decided the flowers could serve dual purpose, to remove the totality of nudity and to add to the peaceful nature and beauty of the image. What’s best is that I allowed the color selection for the flowers be an organic, but complimentary decision – and they subsequently dictated the rest of the image.
I love the finished product. I hope you do too. I present:
In the Garden
