From a creative perspective, lockdown sparked a more experimental approach for Aoife Tolerton. Her daily interruptions stopped overnight so she has time to sketch and experiment with mixed media. She grew the exotic poppy seeds, sunflowers, chrysanthemums and dahlias she'd been planning for a few years.
“Dahlia Dream” echoes the delicate nature of this amazingly detailed flower. Aoife has used a layered mixed media technique using watercolour, acrylic and pencil to illustrate the ethereal complex beauty of these flowers. The piece is mounted and framed in a white frame to complement the artwork.
