I love to alternate my digital work with analog stuff but I’m not always very trusting in my own ability to create beautiful things by just drawing or painting. Sometimes though I overcome that insecurity and create something I’m truly proud of.
This series Retro doodle actually started out as a warm up piece to get used to a new paint brush I just bought. I was doing a series of water color floral patterns for a client and I needed to get the right control in my movements. When I had finished with the clients work I went over all my “movement” sheets and got the inspiration for this. I scanned it and started playing with it in photoshop to see how to best repeat it and I think i managed a pretty harmonic result. I’m very into retro pre war patterns at the moment and I think thats why I liked this one so much. And since I already scanned it I could not help but to play with the color variations as well.
