Scent or Peace

IF (Illustration Friday), 8/1/14 the topic was Peace.  For this project I can up with a subject pretty quickly while doing some sketches and playing with ideas.  I decided to portray a 'peace' symbol created out of a twisted vine of flowers.  I've always been fond of the swirling and twisting of floral vines, and found inspiration for work within Art Nouveau.  The design itself is simplistic, and in keeping with that theme I chose to utilize a lighter, more watercolor style as I feel it also portrays the fragile nature of both flowers/peace, and their temporal existences.  The illustration is entirely digital done in Painter.
