this colorful world

 Story

For this project I choose the theme 'positive vibes'. After reading Kaffe Fasset's autobiography, "Dreaming in Colour" - I am inspired by one of the chapter called "Finding color in a gray world". Sometimes I feel like my life is gray, and I want to bring all the colors to make it cheerful :) When I am having a hard time I find bright spaces and colours help to get me through the rough spot. 

Inspiration

I have been looking at Scandivanian designs, and also works by Josef Frank & Kaffe Fasset (those knits and quilts!)

Mmm decided to color my sketch for fun- I am not done sketching yet. This sketch was inspired by a lake I saw which was full of half-dead waterlilies. Why not give each of them personalities? :)

Digital sketch/colouring

I used mostly live trace for this project. Still need practice using the wacom tablet. I find my hands shaky...

Blooming Waterlily- This pattern is inspired by a lake of dried waterlilies I saw during a holiday. I tried to imagine them being alive, and full of colours, with big and small plants living happily in one place.

Lakeside- From my first pattern I was loving the waves and wanted to focus on them. The sound of gentle waves, and wind comes to mind.

Dotted leaves- Enjoying smaller details in life can give so much pleasure. I love looking at leaf patterns when out on walks with my toddler.

Pretty plants- I wanted to portray a pretty plant, tall and confidence in being itself.

Dancing waves- Inspired by sea and coral life. I love to see how water plants seem to be dancing. And waves...just keep on moving.
