Another sunflower bundle tattoo design commission. I could do a million different versions of these floral bundles and never tire of them. They’re truly a treat.
Despite being super busy lately, I’m going to make a serious attempt to properly keep up with my art-related social media updates. I’d like to continue to share peeks at works in progress, but I need a better camera than my iPhone to do so in a way that doesn’t make me cringe (as the above photo does). If anyone has any suggestions for decent digital cameras that are fairly inexpensive and will do the job of taking lovely photos of drawings, let me know!
This was a birthday gift for a friend, quicker than my usual approach. Been a long time since I’ve done a watercolour! Been super busy at class, cramming new concepts into my brain. Doing this sunflower was pretty relaxing.
For National Red Rose Day we thought we’d make a fun gif of “a rose resuscitated.” Palingenesis is the act (or idea) of raising a plant from its own burned ashes. Athanasius Kircher was a believer and gave his method in Mundus Subterraneu, 1665. The method is also laid out with this illustration in Curiosities of Nature and Art in Husbandry and Gardening, 1707 by Abbé de Vallemont.
