I don’t remember if I have mentioned this before but every now and then I am following along to these exercises in this book Color + Pattern by Khristin A. Howell. It’s a really fun book especially for those really into pattern design.
For this current exercise I was doing I had to gather 10 different types of foliage and make a pattern out of them. It was pretty straightforward at first but during the design process, boy did I struggle. After the fourth pattern, it started to get a bit more difficult coming up with ways to design the leaves differently from the previous pattern.
As you can probably tell the formatting for a couple of them seems similar so that’s something I really need to work on, but at least the style of how each foliage is done has its own flavor. All in all, it was a fun exercise and it would be interesting to see what would have happened if it was a different subject matter.
Until next time!
