More Pattern Design Experiments
I have continued to work on pattern designs for use within my proposal. Originally when I started looking at pattern design it was inspired by the 18th Century silk designs from Spitalfields, the delicate floral designs of the period can be seen not just on textiles but also in wallpaper and fashion design. I want to stick with the floral images but find a more contemporary image or way of using pattern in my proposal. I decided that to move my original design on I would begin by recording forget-me-nots in several different media. I am still working on these images but this is what I have done so far:
Painted study of a forget-me-not flower - I used acrylic paint in bright colours to create a bold image of a single flower
Pattern Repeat - I scanned in the painting and created a pattern repeat in the same way that I created my original design only this time I used photoshop instead of cutting it out by hand.
