Night Garden

Last year just before Christmas a friend of mine from work commissioned me to work on an artwork for her newly renovated home. I cannot write in words how elated I was! It was something I always wanted to do and now I had been given a chance to do it.

And so I started working on this project last year. Slowly but surely the artwork started taking shape. I do not think I ever felt as happy as I did while painting it. It was pure love for each colour , for each stroke of the brush, for every detail in the florals and for each stroke of ink added to it to bring out the darkness within.

I would like to call it the night garden.

The Blck Pen x Red Velvet

Hello!! Been a very long time since I posted anything on my blog. Full time job to be blamed here 😛

Last year I got a message in my inbox from Komal the creative mind behind Red Velvet to work on a floral print for their next collection. I was way to eager to jump onto this opportunity as I love anything floral.

After much back and forth over emails due to the distance, her being in Mumbai and me in Sydney, we finished what we started. It was an amazing experience and I loved every bit of it.

The collection that we started working on is finally out for you to have a look at here.

Enjoy some of my process images below and see how the print was developed.

Hope you enjoy

Hibiscus

 Back to doing botanical illustrations. Found this pretty hibiscus while on a walk so decided to illustrate it.

I have been trying to work with ink and slowly getting the hang of it. I love how the black looks really black if that makes any sense 😛

Was playing around with the pattern and wasn’t really sure which direction I should go in. Finally I just did two one mirrored and the other a drop repeat. Which one do you like ?

Monochrome Rangoli

Rangoli is a folk art from India in which patterns are created on the floor of the courtyards  using colored sand , rice or flower petals. It is made during the festival of Diwali or during occasions such as weddings. The designs are usually geometric but not always limited to it and you can be as creative as possible.

I like the geometry of the designs and so I decided to use it as inspiration for my next pattern. I used floral and paisley motifs to create a contrast with the geometric pattern.  For the color palette I went with monochromatic using tints and shades of blue. Here’s what it looks like.

If you are interested in purchasing this print head over to Society 6 for some cool products and art prints.

Hope you like it. 🙂
