The story behind: Leaves

Every month, we tell you the story behind an image from the IXXI collection. Just because we can, because the image is particularly appealing, or is stunningly beautiful or has an interesting back-story. This time, we want to tell you the story behind the Leaves from the IXXI x Lotte Dirks collection. You’ll find out all about Lotte Dirks’ creative process and how she designed this image especially for IXXI. 

In the article IXXI welcomes Lotte Dirks, you can read about how Lotte loves nature and is at her happiest when she's illustrating flowers and plants. She can't get enough of plants and flowers in all their forms. That’s how Leaves came into being. “When I’m enjoying nature, I’m always surprise by the diversity of plants. It’s great that some leaves are transparent and allow the light to shine through and you end up with a beautiful variation of light and dark”, explains Lotte. “You'd think that all leaves are green but if you look closely, you’ll see lots more colours. Blue, yellow and even shades of purple.”

Lotte usually starts a new image with a few shapes that she thinks complement one another. She then works with these forms and combines them with one another. “After a lot of moving, adding elements and taking some away, I create an image that I’m happy with.”

When she is working on a new image, she lets the briefing take over. Ideas about the task then take shape in the background When she has found the right idea, Lotte begins a sketch in pencil and then develops this digitally. “My work is often a combination of analogue and digital techniques. I love traditional printing techniques such as stencilling. But I usually add colour to the prints digitally.” So Lotte works with the best of both worlds!

“Before I start, I make a colour plan. Once the illustration is almost done, I harmonise the colours so that they all complement one another. In the case of Leaves, I was looking for a colour palette that was a bit different to the rest of the collection. I prefer not to have too many different colours in one image. It should all be balanced and not too bright. Sometimes, I play around for a while until the colours are right.”

The plants in Leaves are a combination of real and non-existent plants. “Sometimes, I draw plants according to a plant herbarium but I tend to prefer to draw them freehand. I’m not sure why, but I think it’s because it feels more instinctive.”
