Leaf pattern

Leaf pattern - student project

I want to make a leaf pattern inspired by the tree species in my local park. I started by researching the species and making a Pinterest board of reference photos.

Next I traced the leaves in Procreate to make my motifs and coloured the sketches.

Finally I arranged the leaves into a half-drop repeat and adjusted the colours a bit.
