Working up a fennel/morning glory design

Fennel-2Change of season and change of mood and I’m feeling like working stripes into my more floral scarf designs. Looking at Mother Nature’s versions of decorative streaks has given me a good place to start.

Some variations of Morning Glory have been worth stripping back to a slightly less intricate rendering and then worked with different colour combinations.

However, although these ideas would work well if I was screen-printing them onto a scarf, my freehand, painting style needs to have a looser starting point. I thought I’d combine these heavier looking floral shapes with my recent fennel inspired motifs.

Fennel-1

Here’s work in progress of a version I’ve created combining the two ideas.

    1. In this video – all a bit wobbly!! I’m usually more steady than this, but the minute I knew the camera was filming I got all jittery. This was the third attempt – quite pathetic really. 😄
