Phew, it's been a tough week. Loads of work, lovely visitors, and tons of challenging coursework to complete for the brilliant Make Art That Sells e-course I'm taking. Not much time for much else, including sleep. But I did it. Not only did I survive but it was a hugely amazing learning experience.
The Mushrooms Twist pattern collection above is the result of dipping my toes into unknown waters and wading out of my comfort zone (I used some of the drawings from my last post, here) ... I've explored using icons and textures and free-flowing them all into a pattern - that I'm not wholly comfortable with I must admit, but the fact that it's the beginning of a leap (swim/dive/wade?) into unknown waters is, personally, wonderful. It's an adventure.
Once it had been uploaded into class I took a look at some of the work from the other students and was pretty much blown away, they are brilliantly talented. Hugely inspiring.
Too exhausted now, I need to catch up on sleep! Perhaps dream of patterns and colours and icons. I've already started work on the next mini-exercise and will post those in a couple of days. Meanwhile, here's the above pattern again - what do you think that would look like on, say, a tea towel?
Wishing you a day full of beauty. Cheers.
