ALOE PLANT PROJECT
I have been hesitant to indulge in any medium requiring intense color use, for the majority of my schooling and career. Recently I found myself toying with professional use markers. I started with sketches from sits in the Conservatory, and slowly began to experiment with more complex color blending and layering.
This led to an large scale concept using between 100-120 different markers.
I had a vision to put a potted healing plant in the center of a natural wild environment. The plant is technically in the wilderness, but not it's natural environment, and is domesticated.
I have spent close to 120 hours on this piece, and am looking forward to it's completion and what it will lead me to next.
