Repeating pattern design in progress. This is very much influenced by both japanese prints and William Morris. This way of making a repeating pattern effectively involves two drawings, one that is around the outside that will match up when the tile repeats and the other (in this case the ducks) in the middle of the page. This is watercolour so no doubt there will be a bit of messing around in photoshop afterwards to line up the pattern!

With the exception of artists, inventors, and teenagers - we humans are diurnal daytime creatures on the whole, and although it’s one thing to be out and about during the night in a street lit urban environment, it’s a very different scenario if you find yourself in, say… oh, I don’t know, a forest per se. Where, if you’re lucky, you may hear the unmistakable cry or hoot of an Owl: natures very own nocturne, a stark reminder of the unknown peril of night, and a creature that has featured heavily in myth and folklore throughout the ages.
