I started with a small design using the giraffe pattern, spirals and bright colors. It was a fun piece where I also played with adding in some raised and sculpted shapes.
After doing several birds, the next subject I couldn’t wait to do was the giraffe. The patterns of their body were so fascinating to me. The first giraffe was ‘”AMARI” and I used bright reds and yellows with the shield patterns I started to like so much.
