Corona Solis (papa)

15" x 22", watercolour, 2000

Ashley's back again in this one (pun intended) and, this time, I wanted to make it look like the sunflower was a tattoo. I used black ink for the outline and coloured the flower flatly, but conforming to the contours of her back to help the illusion. The dangly bit below her hair is the back of the same necklace that's in CS (golf).

I didn't have a sketchbook with me at the time I came up with the tattoo idea (that arrow leads to a note, indicating this), so I drew the sketch below on whatever piece of paper I had at hand.

Sketch (in ball point!)
