The Painter's Garden

My Inspiration:

For this project I found inspiration in the paintings of famous artist who inspire me in my own painting endeavors. My focus was mainly on Van Gogh, Monet, Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. All such amazing artists. I hope in this sense I was able to "steal like an artist," -- that was such a great book, by the way!

The Color Palette:

I wanted a bright color palette, but I wanted yellows and greys as well...and this turned out to be the best photo for the job. I pulled out additional colors from the photo for a total of 11.

I did all of my sketches (except the logo) by painting freehand in gouache...lots and lots of sketches...

The Painter's Garden Paragraph:

The Painter’s Garden invites you to curl up with your favorite cozy shawl on the banks of the water lily pond. Relax and enjoy the colorful blooms, the clouds that scuttle by and the birds that swirl on paint splotched breezes. Magical and timeless, this garden is meant to inspire wonder and evoke feelings of nostalgia of the painters from times gone by.

The Patterns:

I made more than six patterns...lol! I couldn't help myself!
