New Work

Floating Petals                                                                                                                                 by Velásquez©2012


Wanted to share what I have been up to lately. Here is some work I just completed. I have been  working on the computer lately. I have been doing my usual sketching, drawing and mark making but I have been using my "other" art making tool, the computer to color and manipulate my designs! I have always been more of a tactile artist/designer, but what fun I have had! What I have learned this week is that one motif has many lives!

I am taking an e-course called The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design with Rachael Taylor and Beth Nicholls. We are currently in Module Two of the course, there are three Modules in all.
What a great course! It taps into your entire artisitc being. Surface pattern design work has so many intersections of art and inspiration in one piece that one can see the mix of beauty and ideas.

  2. Very beautiful. . I love the top one especially. So eye catching and fun. I wish I could take that course. It's not in the budget right now, but maybe once we get to the doing stage in HSHB I'll have some extra money to work with. Fingers crossed!

  8. Those are fantastic color combinations! I've always been a fan of black and orange, but it takes some skill not to come out halloweeny. You nailed it!

  9. This is exciting to see, Deborah! I took Surface Pattern Design before doing it on computer was the norm...wonderful results! Does the class teach you the computer tools for this? Or is it focused on design? I'm interested in the April class...
