Floribunda Optimistica by Helena Wilsen - Saunders

A4 coloured pencil drawing of fantasy flower bursting with life and fertility. Part of a series inspired by synaesthsthetic taste response to visual stimulus.
That is I can taste little sugar pills in my mouth when looking at bright flowers in the sunshine. It seemed natural to draw little beads of tone and colour to reflect this. It also compliments the feeling of endless renewal and magic that we can have in our lives.
A4 coloured pencil on white Bristol board.

    Reminds me of a pomegranate. It’s stunning! You know…..I like this stuff so much that I’m thinking of decorating my powder room with these. I think it would be so cool! Give a small dark room some light!

  • What a lovely idea!! :-D
