The Art & Business of Surface Pattern Design - Week 2
Just catching up on the second week of The Art & Business of Surface Pattern Design.
The week involved lots of playing around and sketching, which was perfectly timed to co-incide with my Intragam infusion (one of the nurses actually called it Instagram last week), and sitting around waiting for other medical appointments.
From the pages of rough sketches, I chose one motif to work with, and created this pattern.
It's really interesting to stand back and look at it in different colour combinations. The top left one actually hurts my eyes (which means it REALLY must be too bright), but I think the bottom right would be perfect for a dress.
It's amazing how a simple sketch can be transformed!
