mixed media on paper

The symbolism of the sunflower is that when something dies, it regenerates new life. Initially I made a paper mâché base with beautiful inks painted on top. The colours included brown, sepia, black and white. I used the white ink to contrast and lock the viewers vision on particular areas. I made flowy and flexible strokes with my paint brush to create a sense of it being alive.
