WEDNESDAY ILLUSTRATION:ISSA SPRING 2013 RTW



Today's illustration is inspired by Issa Spring Summer RTW collection. I especially love the beautiful prints and bright color palette from this collection! Very delightful! 
" 'Goddess.' Daniella Helayel was unequivocal in her description of the woman who inspired her new collection. With Malcolm Edwards' orchid-wrapped hairstyles and Val Garland's glossy-lipped maquillage offering sterling support, Helayel's female deity could have slithered straight off one of those Roxy Music covers that defined sophisticated womanly allure in the seventies."-Style.com

I have always been intrigued by flower meanings and symbolism. After I finished the painting, I was wondering about the meaning of orchid flowers. After a brief research, I found out orchid flower represents innocence, love, luxury, delicate beauty and strength...Ah, so beautiful! 
If you have been following my blog, you know I can't get tired from painting stylish girls, enjoy drawing flowers, LOVE painting them together even more. Every flower is very unique in its own way, just like people. After I painted some floral portraits, I always associate the girls/women I meet with different kinds of flowers. 
Just think how intriguing and elegant would a girl be if she embodies the lovely qualities of orchid flowers...
