Mimosa girl

As part of a triptych, this mimosa girl was done on watercolour paper using mainly watercolour, and acrylic for the background. Although the mimosa blossoms in February in the South of France , I still want to use this flower in my design today, for its fluffiness and golden colour and a  touch of softness for this dress.

Mimosa is dominating our landscape at this time of the year. Lots of public celebrations with the mimosa theme are taking place everywhere in this part of the world. I have decided that this painting would be dedicated to the glorious mimosa colour and its amazing blossom. You will notice that  even the costume is garnished with mimosa.
