photoshop lady

Trying to combine patterns and shape. i think this is the best attempt due to the colour and combination of scale.

As i'm struggling to get the right print colours mixed up that i want to achieve this term i've become pretty obsessed with creating pattern on photoshop. i will eventually screen print the successful designs but for now i feel satisfied.

trying to make this work.

my 2 favorite designs are above.

Im not really in the mood for this project anymore. i need to print more but my current screens are not really working for me. so to get my self motivated ive gone back to photoshop to create some designs to digital print on wallpaper, and then ill turn them in to screens... hopefully...

maybe i like pattern too much?

I have been trying to focus on my use of colour within my work. For these designs I have taken my inspiration from Marni's 2010 collection. I think its working well for me at the moment however, it will be hard to achieve these colours on fabric using acid and procion dyes.

My last project (at uni anyway)

I have been working on my final major project for about 3 weeks now and i'm enjoying it so much more then last term. I think this is because I know more about what I want to achieve. My project is based around a similar theme as last term, which was Drawing from contemporary furniture. I am taking this idea forward by drawing from similar objects however, I am also drawing from museums and general house hold items. I am wanting to see how drawing from different decades of furniture and home-ware effects my style and drawings. I am still designing prints for interiors.

These are a few examples of photos that i have started to draw from and make patterns.

Abstract furniture designs continued...

Photoshop designs for digital print.
