Pool for Georgia

I used the colours and shapes from two paintings "The White Flower" and "Two Calla Lilies on Pink" by O'Keeffe, and in general the natural form of all her flower paintings, as inspiration for this design.

    Thanks lovely =)  I didn't even know you could add a description to a design haha. How have I managed to go this long on RS without noticing that?!

    I understand what you're saying and I completely agree with that. It's like if someone take a room and just hang a picture on a wall et voila! It's a creation inspired by so-and-so, the artist! (Maybe mine is not so far of that).

    I would kindly suggest that you put the answer you gave me (how this work is inspired by those O'Keeffe's paintings) into the description above, so no one can misinterprete it.

    You know I really like all your creations and this one is clever and surprisingly different, that's why it's so special. You have my vote, for sure. Big hugs and keep it shinning.

    LuzMa HL no worries =) Sorry if I sounded harsh. Contests based on artists always bug me because it's supposed to be 'inspired by' but a lot of people put one of the artist's pieces on a wall and make little effort to do more. That's not aimed at you or anyone in particular. I did the same thing with the Matisse contest - the design I entered used a Matisse print on the wall but my original design was a room ''inspired'' by Matisse which I managed to get looking like a Matisse painting without using one of his pieces as wall art... I was too chicken to enter that one though and went with the simpler design which was more likely to do well in the contest - that was some time ago and I've stopped entering designs that I think might do well and started just entering ones I like and that I'm proud of lol.

    LuzMa HL - the design brief said "Design indoor swimming pool inspired on the work of Georgia O'Keeffe". I used the curves and colours from her 2 paintings "The White Flower" and "Two Calla Lilies on Pink" and her general body of work on flowers as inspiration for my design. The design brief did not state "use one of Georgia's paintings  in your design". I don't see the issue.
