Sketch Colour Design Repeat….not always in that order but in a basic way that sums up my process.
COLOUR and DESIGN
These are usually combined…often I have a couple of colours in mind and add or adapt depending on the brief. Design could also be composition, this is my favourite part connecting all the piece and almost always this work is fleshed out in Illustrator and Photoshop.
Tip: if drawing animals look for flowers and leaves from their natural habitat it can help bring the design together.
and hopefully something good comes at the end…
Been a few days since I could post any designs on the blog, work behind the scenes continues with new collections set in various directions which is fantastic news but none that I can share at the moment.
What I can share is my bird and leaf prints, summer came and went, then came again and then disappeared with the storm so I drew a few little birds with what looks like scarves and a bunch of leaves and petals that fluttered about in the winds! Hope you have more days of sun than we have, although I have to admit to liking the warm rain! Not picnic weather but great for a stroll!

My last post was about too much to do, this kind of reflects that need for a break sometimes and that it is never a bad thing to stop, step away from the computer or the art board and listen to the birds for a while!
