First heritage patterns

First heritage patterns - student project

This is my first attempt on heritage patterns, I thought it would be difficult but in fact as it is so well explained step by step it was easy and fun. I began with a lot of practice and sketching from all the reference you provide. I also went to the Acanthus Leaves Lesson and did a lot of practice from there to.

Some sketches

This was my first Damask pattern in a romantic style, with lace and roses. I added a grunge texture to make it look like faded over time.

My second one


And then I tried something more modern adding some more colors.

I absolutely loved this class!! This is a finding for me, it's exactly the kind of lessons I was looking for. Thanks Bärbel for this wonderful approach to patterns, I'm going ahead on watching your other courses.
