Springtime Hair

Dolce and Gabbana are not usually on the wonder | wander | women's radar; we're more interested in fashion on an aesthetic level and don't keep up with the couture brands. But once in a while a past or new collection will catch our eye and spark a new project.

The Spring/Summer collection of 2014 featured some of our favourite things: Greek and Roman influence, cherry blossoms, and light floaty dresses. But what really caught our eye was the hair: braided updos twined with tiny white flowers and decorated with antique-looking coins.

Someone else was inspired...this Internet artist digitally coloured the models' hair with pastel and spring colours, and in turn gave us this idea.

Inktense coloured pencils and Winsor & Newton watercolours on heavyweight cartridge paper.

Workspace: a small desk, natural light, and iPad for reference.

The work in progress.

The finished art!
