I was asked to complete a commission which was to be presented as a Christmas gift for a corporate client and was to form part of their private collection. The directive was for a piece in silver/grey to fit the decor of client’s study. Wanting to draw on the spirit of Christmas I decided to source flowers that were naturally silver/grey in colour and came across the Veronica Silver Grey. Inspired by the curving forms of its petals I focussed in on a small area and enlarged to accentuate the sweeping curves.
