Today, I decided that I wanted to try doing a watercolor painting based solely on warm and cool colors, which is how this whole thing got started. I chose to do a portrait of Florence Welch from the band Florence + The Machine because I thought her bright hair would lend itself quite well to the color scheme restraints. This turned out to be a lot of fun and I want to try doing more watercolor portraits in this manner. It's a good exercise, if anything.

The final painting measures 12" x 12 and was completed on April 17, 2011.

Prints are now available!

A great interview with Florence and the Machine when they were backstage at The O2; find out what music Florence dances to in her pyjamas and her true thoughts about touring.

is it really necessary to call other people's work "junk"

i agree that this is absolutely beautiful and other people may not be able to create art as amazing as this but that is no reason to call anyone elses work junk is it?
