Corona Solis (juliet)


22" x 15", watercolour, 2000

This is the same model as in CS (foxtrot) and I had the same problem of trying to find a suitable place for the flower. Again, I played around in my sketchbook (sorry, not interesting enough to post here) with different arrangements, and, since she's leaning more in this one, and her hand's in that position, a single large sunflower was the best solution.

I did try a bit of light bloom around her head by softening the edges, but I still think that effect was better achieved in CS (charlie).

I don't know why I left that triangular negative space grey rather than filling it with more blue matrix...
