G for Goldfish repeat patterns

August 2019

These designs are for the letter ‘G’ of my alphabet project. I created the goldfish pattern by hand-drawing the fish with pencil, fineliners and Sharpie markers. I like the watery background colours which I added in Photoshop. I feel the orangey fish stand out nicely against the turquoise and azure blue water.

This is a an artwork I made for a charity auction to be held in August 2019 in aid of Waveney and Blyth Arts, for which I am a member. The piece was postard sized and was also created for my alphabet project. I hand drew the Forget-me-not flowers with pencil, fineliner pens and Sharpie markers. to create an alternative version I scanned the piece and inverted the colours in Photoshop. The Forget-me-not is one of my favourite flowers!

I decided to create another ammonite repeat as I feel the pieces below are a little too simple. I am happier wth the result and like the way the drawings work on the background colour.
