In case you didn’t know Flowrsinher Hair is an art name of a very talented Cape Town artist Jeanne-Marie Webb. FB community of artists often call her simply Flowers. She is indeed very beautiful flower-like gentle soul:
So “Soulful Sisters” is my collaboration with her:
Jeanne Marie has visited me recently for a weekend of fun and inspiration. On a spur of the moment she suggested we make an artwork together, and we have filmed it along the way. We started with painting 2 faces on 1 large piece of paper, using only 1 reference (just to see where the light falls and to guide us in the color palette.)
Ok, are you ready to see the reference?!! I am closing my eyes now… 3-2-1… Ta-da!!!
What?! I know, right?! Flowrs hardly used the reference, she is rebellious like that. And I was like: “Hey! Are you using the reference?!” And she was be like: “Ummm… Hmmm… Yea…” I used it a lot! (That’s the way I paint). Somehow this lovely warm green have crept into our work and tied it all together. And the light fell where it should be.
She painted her side for a while and I painted mine, and then we swapped sides and interfered with each other’s work, then we swapped sides again and the artwork was done!
Magic happened! We are both in love with this work, but who gets to keep it? Tough decision… So, we have to sell it. It went to Flowrs shop.
And here is the video incase you missed it:
Thank you for viewing, we had fun!
