George and I are working on a graphic for the Puyallup 2016 Sewing Expo. It's possible I may be a speaker (yeah!) and I need to send in a graphic for the catalog
in case I get in.
Update 17Nov15, I'm in! I'll be teaching and have a booth. Look for the final image in the Expo catalog to find my class.
Ann Sagawa, my contact, suggested a combination of Paganoonoo pattern, starting shirts and finished garments. Great idea!
|George, with his extraordinary photography skills |
captured all the elements.
|which helps some... but still seems to blend in a bit too much.|
|So I thought a background from the opposite side of the color wheel might help. It does, but is a bit too light.|
|So I darkened the background just to get the feel |
of how it would look. I also darkened the line around the pattern. I like it.
|Here is the whole progression. The background probably would not have occurred to me without the training I received in Advanced Illustration last semester.|
And yes, this is almost as much fun as coloring!
