Havana Dreams - Toile de Cuba

Havana Dreams - Toile de Cuba - student project

Inspired by my 2017 travels to Cuba and the photos I took in Havana, this toile depicts scenes I encountered on this wonderful caribbean island.

These are just very few of the many photos I took:

I didn't completely follow Bärbel's instructions (which were absolutely helpful and great btw!), but I drew everything on my ipad in procreate, so I could also sketch during my lunch break at work.

I made a vertical repeat as I created this for a wallpaper challenge on spoonflower -I also did not vectorize my motifs, instead I created the repeat in Photoshop and used my own linen texture in the background.
