Today has been another productive one; I am always happiest when designing wallpaper layouts and it is definitely showing in how well things are going. I love seeing designs develop - from a single motif into a repeat and then into coloured patterns. It is a long process and tests focus and patience, but it is definitely worth it when you see the final painted outcomes!
I feel really inspired at the moment and I am eager to continue working hard.
This is my fourth design idea - the floral motifs create an interesting pattern but the design will come alive once I start to experiment with colour, media and different backgrounds.
I intend to start playing around with colour ways and techniques over the next few days so watch this space!!
Above - a little bit of experimentation with my pencils and waterbrush from Derwent. There are some lovely colours; I am especially looking forward to using the beautiful metallic pencils!
