Interpreting Grace Ciao’s technique

Grace Ciao is famous for her creative technique of using real flowers for her designs, she carefully places the petals to create skirts for gowns Image result for Grace ciao

for the below image firstly i drew the figure using pencils, i then went over the top of the outline lightly using watercolours as this is a technique that Grace uses regularly in her designs. once the watercolours were dry i then added real rose petals to create the bottom of the gown, i did this by layering starting with the larger petals first.

I then repeated the process to create another look of Grace’s this time adding hints of colour in the petals with green watercolour.
