Pale Blue Sari

Drawing inspiration from a collection of fabrics and Indian clothing I was given at the time of my own wedding. 
Also including what I call ‘motifs’ from other sources, namely some Chinese brocade fabric collected when working with artisans in China some years ago.

some more preliminary sketches

stage 1 base colours and some gold added

The pale sky blue background base colour was chosen for it’s connotations to the sky and to the concepts of freedom and clarity.
