My first post of 2015 is one I've been saving especially - Introducing the latest work of Wilder California: Wilder Winter is the newest collection of photography prints by Jane Wilder, featuring botanical themes with a cold aesthetic. Not so long ago I featured Wilder's work on Dursk (view past post here) and was hypnotised by such a dominant pastel colour palette and her eye for capturing natural plant-life in a contemporary way. By applying additional tonal effects and adapting her imagery into an artographic form, Jane's work encourages the eye to focus upon the intricate details of the natural world that might usually go unnoticed.
Wilder Winter is Jane's second collection due to be sold on her Wilder California Etsy shop, with it's release being launched here on Dursk. Despite the distance, myself and Jane wanted to convey winter photography that encompassed our similar tastes and I'm so happy to have been a small part of this creative process. I supplied Jane with a colour palette that channeled her pastel signature style, but was altered slightly with dulled down shades for the winter months.
With the influence of the colour palette, Jane has captured the changing colours of the current Northern California winter storms and the result is a cool adaptation of on-trend botanical prints, but with a refreshing colour scheme that redefines winter greens.
The Wilder Winter Collection goes on sale today on her Etsy shop (here) and until February 1st customers can get an extra 15% off, using code word DURSK - Happy January! X
