"A flower... a woman" is a project aiming to create quite a few illustrations of women, the style being quasi realistic, under the general topic of the flower. Thus, each final illustration will include a flowery background related to a country, and on the foreground, a woman in typical outfit of this country, with colors inspired and decided by the said flower. Little personal challenge personnel from an artistic point of view, the idea was to draw each illustration with the style of the regarded nation (for the Chinese, choice of China Ink; for the Japanese, choice of manga style; for the African, choice of the red ochre chalk...) This project is for the moment only at its first steps, those of the graphical research of women face that will be used as models for final illustrations... Here is a sneak peek, waiting for the project completion.
