Twisted Black Vine

Through a process of colour limitation, I extracted this design from a photograph I used for study, found on Pinterest. Originally I was interested in painting a portrait with strong contrasts. When it was complete, I felt it lacked detail, so designed the twisted black vine beside the portrait using the colours left on the palette. This informed the pattern on the red scarf. Later I repeated the pattern to see if it could be applied as wall paper.
