Pearls. In january I took the bus from Porvoo to Helsinki, and met one of my former workmates. A busride later I had an assignment for her new business Porvoon Helmikammari. I got in love with the different shapes of pearls, and had to work a bit on the shadows, colours and shapes to get it right. I noticed that to make a pearl look white, it has to hold tiny amounts of many different colours: yellow, blue, a bit of gray, and red.
