Colour palette for Violet Necklace

  1. A photograph that I took a couple of years ago of some Paris street art. Even their graffiti is elegant!
  2. A grid drawing I had fun doing – experimenting with different colour combinations.
  3. A gorgeous vintage postcard that I found at Camberwell market. Beautiful contrast between the vibrant flowers and the neutral background.
  4. A watercolor study of hair.
  5. Another play with watercolours.
  6. I recently re-discovered Hama beads. Such fun to create patterns with!
  7. A section of vintage art deco fabric. Such a lively combination of colour, shape and pattern.
