“Inspired by” a new series on the blog of images and ideas that I see on my daily wanders that inspire me to make patterns. Sometimes the pattern of brickwork can spark a design or the skeleton of a leaf that fell from a tree, a motif on iron railings, it maybe taken literally or develop into something very different.
Today’s pattern came from an old wooden front door,
I love the way the diagonals intersect!
Below is my sketch, I added a few more lines to create more depth….
…and then translated the pattern into illustrator to add colour and texture.
Looks good on the final products.
