I have been drawing a new design which I'm now cleaning up in Photoshop ready to turn into a new pattern design soon, my favourite part of the design process is adding colour! The lovely thing about mixing hand drawing with computer manipulation is that you can be brave and play with colours and change things that you don't feel work, experimentation is all part of the process for me. This humming bird sketch is going to be mixed with some other drawings I've been doing of oriental branches and flowers. I feel like my design style is coming through stronger now, I'm really inspired by nature and animals, the initial hand drawing is one of the most important parts of the process for my work.
Here's a sneak preview... Happy Sunday everyone!
