Delicate Floral Pattern
Here is an experimental pattern print inspired by nature. I combined the elements I have from my vector library to create this static illustration pattern print. I was inspired to create something which was delicate and intricate that combined elements from nature such as leaves, and insects. I like to work in both black and white as well as color. Regarding my floral work, color is something I think a lot about.
I test out color palettes, and work through a range of color and combinations one book I reference much of is the Colour index book, written by Jimi Krause, published by David & Charles. This book is invaluable. It has a wealth of color examples which you can experiment with, all colors reference have complimentary colors you can use with other colors as well as the CMYK and RGB references which allows you to create the colors patterns within design software programmes such as Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop for example.
