Designs by Elizabeth McGarrigle

I based part of my collection on objects you might see around a tropical pool; cocktails and palmtrees. These designs I created in an illustrative style using sketches and then manipulated them in Illustrator.

The second part of my collection is a more abstract style based on the pool reflections and the tiles below. I experimented with my newly acquired knowledge of photoshop combining mono printing, watercolour brushes and patterning.

I need more time to play with photoshop but I am pretty happy with the designs I produced. I am sure future briefs will give me the opportunity to push myself and extend my skills further.

Thanks for another great month Patternmash!
