Watercolor Flower Pattern

Watercolor Flower Pattern - student project

A little bit about me... My name is Stacy Kathryn and I'm an artist and newbie surface pattern designer trying to improve my skills and turn this into a full-time gig. For this project, I just did a random search for flower color palettes and went from there. I wanted to practice taking my watercolors and turning them into digital patterns. 

 

The inspiration...

The color palette...

And my final patterns... I'm not entirely happy with how they turned out, but I learned a few tricks to get them to look better like making sure to erase the background in photoshop before bringing over to Illustrator. I'm still having a hard time with the color palettes and getting the coloring to look right. I wiill need some more practice on this!
