Bling Wattle

I've been experimenting with drawing wattle lately. This time, I added some bling in the from of a gold and silver pen. This scan doesn't capture the shine of it in daylight; that wonderful glimmer when light makes gold glow. But it does highlight how colour can really lift an image and give it the perception of depth. 
The main blossom below looks like a weird 70's light-fitting or a dandelion dipped in molten metal, but it's a fun experiment and I'll keep at it.

  1. Oh I love your work! I like dandelions, the combination of colors is exactly my taste. I think this would be fine to hang on one of my walls.

  2. I think that would make the absolutely BEST 'statement' wallpaper!
