Collection complete

Angiosperm IV
Week 9 and I have now completed the Angiosperm (which simply means flowering plant) collection - although i might have to rename it after the strange reactions it has prompted from some.This final design, in repeat, was based on my drawings of the Bird of Paradise plant I saw in Darwin's greenhouse combined with an endangered species known as Eye of the Crocodile as well as other early flowering plants such as the Camellia and Magnolia. The colour palette was inspired by one I saw in Bev's Texitura colours and trends book  called New Byzantine.
 Two of the designs were digitally printed onto linen on Tuesday and two more are scheduled for tomorrow. That's progress!
