Winter Nature

Winter Nature - student project

Student work, pattern project,subject; Inspiration from the nature.

First of all, I didn't want to make flower pattern, which of course was my first thought that came to mind when talking about nature and patterns :)
To find another approach for this assignment I went to my backyard forest to see what I could find from there. I picked some cones and branches to sketch from.

Moodboard came up from previous photos I've taken from autumn colored leaves and plants.

This time of the year weather changes quickly, meaning that in the morning there can be snow covering the land. I saw this pretty frozen decoration with beautiful colors, which became the base of my color palette.

As said, it started snowing and my pattern idea changed along with the weather. I didn't use all these motifs in my final pattern.
