30/01/12 ideas

I have come back home this week and in between helping mum and being distracted by almost anything and everything, I have been playing around with some colour ideas for the designs I created last week...


Design 1 - sketchy floral overlaid pattern with overlapping circles behind





Design 1 - Same design as above but flat blackground with sketchy floral pattern in different colours




Design 2 - Hand drawn flower stems with abstract geometric coloured background




I have loved experimenting with my Derwent pencils; they have helped me to create some really lovely design ideas. I am excited to be introducing brighter colours into my work to make them more eye-catching and interesting, however I am not happy with some of the colours above. These will be changed as more development is carried out with screen print as I mix up the pigments/dyes, but I just wanted to get down onto paper what is in my head and the design ideas I was going for!
