I’ve just completed the final assignment for Make Art That Sells Part B, a course by top illustration-agent Lilla Rogers. I learnt so much from it and looking forward to developing some mini-collections in the coming months based on all I’ve learnt! This week was about party-paper: ie designs for paper cups, napkins and plates that you buy especially for a party. Our mini-assignment was to study folk art from Bavaria and the Ulkraine with a view to incorporating that style into our final submission.
I discovered a new hero, Mariya Pryimachenko, love all her paintings, look at the video to find out more about her:

The colour palette of this Maria Primachenko painting, inspired my final piece.
