New artwork: Kaleidoscope (6)

I have been working on my new artwork Kaleidoscope (6) I have used a very feminine colour palette for my latest work. I will have to go to my local charity shops to replenish my garden books as this has used the last of them.


Where does inspiration come from? I think it is from the drip feed of information that we see everyday.  Yesterday I saw a beautiful dress by Pierre Balmain and this led me to my next idea that will include pearls.  I have also been interested in the pearly Kings and Queens and have been looking at their amazing clothing. I wont be using the pearls as a pattern but as markers for stars in the night sky. Ross Bleckner produces beautiful paintings which seem really simple, but beautiful and have a celestial quality to them.  I have recently visited the dark sky at Dumfries and Galloway, where the Milky Way is visible.  When all of these inspirations come together that is how we get the idea
