Flamingos-a-Go-Go

As a recent commission I was asked to create a Butterfly Ball to be hung against this fabulous Cole & Son Flamingo wallpaper. 



I prepared a swatch for the client of colours I thought would be most appropriate from the palette of papers that I use, and then once these were client approved I started cutting. 



I thought that as the dominant background colour of the Flamingo paper was a cool duck egg blue, then the Butterfly Ball needed to be made up of warmer reds, and pinks to highlight the pink of the birds, with accents of blue and grey. This was the resulting artwork. A very nice commission.
