Cultural events have been the order of the week, which has made for a positive start to the summer holidays.
Being around friends who are creative and being in creative spaces ranging from art exhibitions to jazz clubs has inspired me to embrace my own creative side.
So back to the drawing board literally. I dug out my sketch book and pens, previous drawings (for reflections) and digital drawing pad. I made a list of the principles I wanted to follow so I had a basic structure and just got doing.
You can see from these initial drawings and experiments (and these are just my favourites from a multitude of different examples) that there are two variations - layers and single image.
At the moment I am really drawn to these two aesthetics, let’s hope others agree too. The next plan is to experiment more with mono printing and painting in to the image for a mixed media layered effect, which again is very pleasing to the eye and I have had good feedback on this. So I will try to push forward with this as well.
But so far I am pleased with how things are progressing. Next task will be to see how the prints looks on fabric by getting some samples done.
So back to juggling selling the current collection and pushing the new one forward.
