Watercolour backgrounds in progress


Happy Easter everyone I hope you have all enjoyed your days off & got to spend quality time with your families. Easter for me is exactly that some time away, a little relaxing, hanging out with my kids & family & it's also some time for me to plan for the next month.

I have been working really hard behind the scenes using different techniques for my work. As much as I LOVE using Adobe Illustrator I have had this itchy feeling about getting away from there a bit & dive into one of my favourite mediums...watercolour. It's been heaven I have just been loving it. You may have noticed snippets on images of work I have been playing around with on instagram & facebook. Yesterday I spent the day playing around with some backgrounds I want to use for some new product designs. Mothers Day is coming up also (May 8th), so I thought creating a new look might be fun?

You know I am a colour lover so be prepared for just that. Bright rainbow brush strokes.

Some abstract lines & triangles, it has a bit of a pretty tribal feel.

There are still lots more ideas floating around in my mind. But at the moment I am scanning them & will be using them for fabric. I have already started creating some products with them, you can pop over & see them on my Mother's Day shop.

Let me know what you think, I'd love to know.

I love working like this it feels really free for me & unstructured. I have had a few mess ups as well, but I love that about watercolour. It's such an unpredictable medium, as much as you try to control whats happening sometimes beautiful accidents happen & sometimes it's a muddy mess. They are the joys.
