I am keen on painterly brushstrokes and I love to explore spontaneous mark-making. I started this collection with a loose floral, sketched in watercolor brushstrokes. I kept the same color palette when I moved on to making intuitive marks on the canvas and letting one brushstroke or shape inform the next. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Jacqueline Maldonado collection without some texture and technique juxtaposition.
These prints were all created in a very carefree, non deliberate way. “Nonchalant Coral” is one of my more popular prints and has been featured with Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters on several home decor products and has also been featured in Joanna Goss’s book, “Watercolor Ideas.” I built this collection around that print using some color adjustments to coordinate the eclectic aesthetic.
Feel the tropical boho vibes with this trendy mix of watercolor floral palm leaf prints and traditional stone and dye textures. The contrasts of geometric versus painterly and solid versus airy, all in a fresh palette of blush pinks and greens, combine for a balanced, playful and harmonious aesthetic.
