Playing with colours

illawarra flame tree

This image came from looking at the colours of the Illawarra Flame Tree. Its the nearest I get to doing flower fairy pictures (I loved the flower fairies when I was little). In fact it felt more like a Robin Hood archetype as I was painting it.

My experinence of this plant comes from using the flower essence - its in the Australian Bush range - and the pictures I've seen.

Who do you see here?

A prince in an Oscar Wilde tale, that's what your illustration reminds me of.

I see a fairy invaded and filled with magic that erases doubt. It spreads like pollen as the fairy touches others.

Robin Hood. After way way too many tequilas.

I love these ideas!

One of the best things about pictures is what others see there. Thank you!
