Pattern Case Study:
I felt an ornamental and retro mood from the pattern. Therefore I started studying Ornamental lines. Drawing different ornamental lines of several widths allowed me to create a pattern to work with and guide me while I was working on the bigger picture.
For this line pattern, I selected a theme which was the “Fleur-de-lys”. The fleur is very representative of the ornamental designs and found it a perfect inspiration for this design. I based the darker colors of the composition just by the thickness of the pens and not by repetition and filling the space.
