Repeating Patterns

Repeating Patterns. They're so rewarding to make and to see the negative space created by them. While it involves A LOT of tracing and painting with guache, it's worth it. I am taking a second year course in repeating patterns to have the time to do more of them, even though I learned the ropes in intro screeprinting.

A repeat made on the computer out of a photograph of a piece of fabric I dyed. It's available on Spoonflower (more to come!) and here it is in the fabric sample!

working on making it digitally reproducible, still needs work!
