I’ve now got several ideas down for repeating patterns. However as I am sketching them I am wondering about what tools I can use in Illustrator to achieve exactly what I want. Or observing some marks and thinking about how it will import with live trace into Illustrator. I am definitely in the surface pattern design headspace which I think is detracting from the actual purpose of this painting session.
We are now onto mark making – this is all about exploring the type of marks your painting tools can achieve.
