Finally the Pattern Tree is finished!! Whoop! Managed to complete it in about a week and definitely ruined one brush doing it. Pretty pleased with the results but I would change the middle if I did it again. Ideally the middle tallest branch would be lower down on the canvas so the white pattern could go over it, forming a proper outline of a tree.
It was a fun experiment to produce some original patterns which have been inspired by Turkish ceramics. From this I might get the pen and paper out and try to create something from them. I’m doing classes on SkillsShare on pattern and surface design so hopefully I can make use of them in one of tutorials.
