Ok, I had time for a quickie. Since all my computer equipment is packed up, today I did a simple watercolor. With a real brush and real paper and everything! It’s not ready for upload to Redbubble, and I’m not going to attempt to do that on my phone. To be digitized when I can fit it in. 🙂

My new theme sprint is: plants! I started off with a repeating pattern of an orange tree. I’ll be able to quickly repurpose the pattern to do a lemon tree, and probably a pear tree.

I’m finding it quite simple to create these repeat patterns now, even when they are somewhat complex.

This particular orange tree pattern would likely suit best as a tablecloth. See it on Redbubble.

OK, today’s my last day of this color scheme. Maybe! Tomorrow I will be either back to animals, or I may try my hand at plant-based patterns. Trees, leaves, and of course, florals.

I will no doubt use this color scheme again in the future, it’s served me well this week.

Today I went for a pattern that may work better for children’s products: rainbow rain and blue clouds. I could see working this into a baby blanket with a matching stripe as a supporting pattern.

See it on Redbubble.

Second to last day of the geometric rainbow designs. I’ll do my last one tomorrow and then go back to animals. However, I may do rainbow geometric animals!

I had a request for shooting stars or sound waves. I tried rainbow shooting stars but I wasn’t happy with the result. Then I tried offset sound waves and couldn’t get the repeat to work well. So I compromised with the following, which was much easier to repeat.

See it on Redbubble!

I continue to indulge my love of rainbows, geometric design, and hearts. And polka dots. Put it all together and what do you get? This:

See it on Redbubble!

In other good news, I have yet another artwork featured on Redbubble’s home page! Design 42 – My raccoon pattern. My birds have been selling quite well, even as they’ve moved down the page and below the proverbial fold, so it’s exciting to have another one featured. Yay!
