New Surface Pattern Design Skills

Recently I've been taking a couple of online courses so that I can learn surface pattern design and new digital art skills.  The classes have been so much fun and funnily enough this new way of working is giving me lots of inspiration for my watercolour paintings  In fact, the two disciplines seem to feed each other.  Here are a few of my pattern designs that I created recently:

Here is the same pattern in another colourway:

And here is a completely new pattern:

One of the things I love most about these new digital art skills I'm learning, is that I can still do lots of drawings and just import them into the software to edit and colour digitally.  So it still feels as if I'm being quite hands on with this way of creating art.

Keep checking back here on my blog for more of my digital artwork as well as my other work too.

Thanks!
