Heavenly is an interesting one… I am really torn between a symmetric black embellishment and something more tonal and watery.
One idea I have is for blue mother-of-pearl detailing, pearls, and possibly shells. You need an awful lot to get the effect, since mother-of-pearl is so subtle at a distance. And it would in particular be that pearlescent but striated effect that I wanted. Impossibly beautiful colours running into one another and shifting in the light.
With all my Butterflies, I hope to do creative shoots before finding their owners. Perhaps that’s how I should think of Heavenly, within the context of an image. What would the image be? What would I want to capture? I think that will help.
