This past week I have gone back to painting patterns. For a few weeks I tried to take a break from them and I worked a little more realistically, but that didn’t last long.
I have done a lot of painting in the past few days. For each of the three paintings I completed I started with a color scheme inspired by different reference images. For the second two of these paintings tried a different way of creating patterns. I took some of my mom’s scrap booking supplies and used them to cut out perfect stars and squares. I collaged these little paper shapes on to the canvas. The best part of this method is that it has allowed me to make a perfect checkerboard pattern that I was not able to create before.
