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:

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!

Wanted to do something a little playful today, and a bit more layered than I’m used to doing. I actually really love how this came out. I did the same color scheme that I’ve been doing, but in a asymmetric diamond pattern on top of a polka dot pattern. It’s fun and looks great on the various Redbubble products. “Design 58 / 365 Days of Design” Womens T-Shirt by divafern | Redbubble

I also created a standalone pattern that you see framed below:
