Minding the Repeat- Week 5


I'm used to working within parameters of a project; the client's desires, the limitations or possibilities of a room or surface, following existing design elements...

I'm also accustomed to working on a large scale; painting walls, ceilings, furniture, creating and producing videos, choosing exterior paint colors for San Francisco's gingerbread Victorians, creating color palettes for a paint brochure...

So, committing to these small weekly paintings has had me working way, WAY, out of my comfort zone. But 5 weeks and 5 paintings in, I think I'm starting to get the hang of it.

I'm always inspired by textile and wallpaper design. Lately I've been really caught up in Navajo style patterns...

The shapes are so dynamic...

And the colors so bold.

I layered the shapes asymmetrically and, threw in a curvy little design element as contrast and balance to the sharp corners and diagonal lines...

Maybe I'll print this on linen and create an upholstery panel for a wingback chair... how would you use this pattern?
