 Spring Sunshine - student project

Can't believe I actually finished the workshop! Steep learning curve but I;m so happy with my illustrations. Thanks Bonnie for hosting the workshop.

My finished motifs.  I couldn't figure out how to export them so just took a photo on the phone. for some reason it kept loading up upside down!  Really happy with how they turned out. Quite a few original sketches didn't make it and I ended up drawing new ones with a photo on screen and the Wacom tablet.  Now to finish the patterns!

These are a few of the sketches that I hope to be using for my pattern.

Spring is my favourite time of year.  New beginnings and a fresh start after winter with new buds opening, flowers blooming, baby birds chirping and the fresh floral fragrance in the air.  A bright, pretty floral pattern is my goal for my first foray into pattern design.  

I'm very excited to be participating in this workshop!!  I chose a floral pattern as this is something that I find easier to draw than a lot of other things.  I didn't want to be too adventurous for my first design as I'm sure it's going to be a really steep learning curve for me.
