Inspiration can come from the most unusual places at times. Whilst steeping a cup of herbal antioxidant tea (have to keep my skin in top shape) I noticed the water acquiring a beautiful raspberry pink tint. The wheels in my head started turning and I thought: "Where else I have seen this brilliant transparent hue? Oh yes, watercolours."
A wonderful thing about watercolours is that although they are quite bright, they are always translucent, allowing light in all the right places. You can incorporate a beautiful palette of translucent colors for your wedding. Take a look at the colors on the Indian bride illustration, they are bold and translucent. Here, I ran with the idea of a sunny early summer day but you can use any colors you prefer for your wedding. The idea is to bring light and translucent colors through sheer material: tinted glass such as Moroccan lanterns, overlaying sheer fabrics and textures and adding tonal shades loosely blended into one another. Have fun!
