Rainy Day Sunflowers
My inspiration with sunflowers is limitless! I started a loose contour sketch using my photographs of our garden flowers, but the design changed from the initial idea. I cut and arrange the shapes and let it evolve on its own. I usually decide on a background hue first (here a limited palette of teal and reds) and then cut the floral shapes.
Early on, I had the idea to construct a different variety of vase and did a separate paper weaving for it. That was glued together, dried and then I cut the shape and experimented on the placement for it. The flower on the top right was started first, then various stems. Collage is a easy medium to work with and the challenge is with the design and colors.
