Cockatoo Artwork & prints – first art created on my Ipad!

Last year and most of this year while my baby was napping, I taught myself how to draw on my iPad I was given the previous Christmas. It seemed like such an intimidating new skill to learn, and for months I’d scribble a few things on it before getting overwhelmed at how little I knew about the brushes and gestures and features and whatever else I didn’t know what I didn’t know!

Finally I traced over a previously drawn line art piece of a cockatoo (more pics of the process to come) and began to embellish it fumbling along a few minutes or hours at a time. When I finally finished, I noticed Procreate (the app I was using) records the amount of hours spent. It was 12 last I checked.

Here’s the finished piece, which I’m in the process of organising to be turned into cushions and wall art for my shop

And here are the patterns I’ve made from the elements of the original artwork :

Designing Voyage Pattern

INSPIRATION FOR THE PRINT:

This print was inspired by bold voyages on the high seas and adventures into the jungles of the Pacific. I also looked at vintage Hawaiian Fabric when designing this. I used moody blues and seductive indigoes, with pops of teal for the palm trees and leaves.

I used digital illustration for this pattern, so keep reading to see the step by step process & progress screenshots.

INSPIRATION FOR THE PRINT:

Diamond Palms Print is inspired by the crisp outline of palm trees mixed with 1960’s garden pavilions and colonial-style garden houses.

I used digital illustration for this pattern. Keep reading to see the step by step process & progress screenshots.
