There are six species of these spangly creatures and peering into this print, I give you ‘Maude’, the American flamingo kind. Flamingoes medley of pink hues and unusual clumsy shape make them unquestionably one of the most popular of birds. And our love affair started thousands of years ago with flamingos being depicted in art as early as 100 AD. A sure fire sign these feathered friends aren’t just a fleeting trend and will always have a place in our homes, in fabulous soft furnishings, whacky wallpapers and fine art prints.
Maude is made up of this lovely blush pink colour, ’Nancy’s Blushes’ with a contrasting backdrop of ‘Cook’s Blue’, both Farrow and Ball creations. Before the third and final layer, the Mars Black that defines the piece, I hand painted her creamy iris which creates a subtle but contrasting texture in comparison to the smooth screen printed layers. She’d be a great companion anywhere in the house whether you’ve neutral decor or to compliment a brightly decorated space.
