Artistic humility

I decided to contrast the orange flowers with green leaves. As an artist, I may describe how the monochromatic oranges in the flowers and background looked beautiful on their own, but the analogous greens help add depth to the flowers. But really, I just liked how the green draws attention to the orange flowers, making them stand out in the sea of orange beads that surrounds them. I love how artists use fancy words to describe colour theory yet in essence, it is the natural world that provides us with our pallet. Reproducing what naturally occurs in creation is an exercise in humility.

While my original intention was to use only orange beads, I didn’t want the flowers to fade into the background of the butterflies. Using analogous colours ensures that the flowers remain the focal points, just like the children they represent.
