The arrangement will be made on round floral foam. Shape is round. The arrangement must be more than 1 meter in diameter. Color is free.
My design fits into the request of the program with a slightly greater extent than requested. Has a decorative style and compositional technique is as Textural, like the Silleteros work it in the region of Antioquia, it is colorful with a variety of flowers that convey the joy of the region.
I used Gladiolus, Gerberas, Dianthus, Roses, Alstroemeria, Delphinium, I wanted a contrast of shapes to develop the saddle.
