So, I have finally got round to updating my blog. I am well in to my major project now and the pressure is on. Time seems to be running away with me and I am far too aware that it will all be over soon. I am enjoying every minute, even when I'm stressed, and will be really sad when I finish.
Anyway I thought I would share some images from my drawing sheets. I am producing designs for wallpapers. My theme is 'Botanical', flora based like my previous projects. This time I wanted to make it a bit different. I started thinking about adding a geometric twist and came up with the idea of mosaic. Then one thing led to another and I ended up drawing flowers in a squared form on graph paper.
I am really pleased with my squared drawings. I like how from a distance it is not as obvious that they are made up of squares and they take on the form of the flower, like a trick of the eye.
It takes me a long time to produce these drawings but I think they are worth the time and effort I put into them. I really enjoy painting them but I get a little bit frustrated towards the end as my eyes start to feel square :)
