Came across Lotta Kühlhorn's gorgeous pattern designs through PRINT magazine's article: The Pleasures of Pattern Design: Lotta Kühlhorn Q&A. They reminded me of the 1960's designs on Penguin's poetry books by Stephen Russ that we attended a lecture and exhibition about earlier in the term. This made me think about making my own pattern to go with the hand drawn lettering I've done rather than using the patterned paper I had.
So today I had a play with painting some orange-inspired patterns. I feel like this was the most successful and tomorrow I'm going to do some more patterns using the colour palette of the patterned paper I used for the hand drawn lettering the other day.
