My name is Manni and I'm a technical Designer in the Fashion industry. I studied fashion and even though I work on the technical end, my passion is designing. I've been in the industry for over 20 years and I think its time I started branching out and doing my "own" creative design.
For this pattern I played around with a design that I had painted a while back and decided to make it into a repeat pattern. I love to dabble in all sorts of mediums and found that painting with gouache was very interesting. I love to use watercolours but thought to try my hand at gouache. The steps to showing you the process of the colour ways was basically getting colour inspiration from Pinterest and then adding any extra colours that might work.
First Photo is the painting I worked on:
The first Pattern that I made was in this Purple / Peach tones:
The 2nd Pattern is more on the corals/ greys/ teals and beiges:
The 3rd Pattern is basically my neutral in Blues/ Sand/ Beiges :
I think this was an amazing class instructed by an even more amazing teacher. This makes me want to do so much more in expanding my collection of patterns. Thank you Bonnie for sharing so much of your knowledge and techniques :) xox
