This was created from cropping the original photo which was of the whole head. I repeated this horizontally and vertically to make a symmetrical unit which i could then go onto repeat again if i wanted.
I am really pleased with the first few designs. They are only simple but i think this is what makes them so visually exciting. I have also started to play around with some of the images i got from Hilliers. The colours in these are gorgeous!
I think when my designs are finally printed onto the roll they will look really impressive. Scale is a big factor in terms of these prints being successful. Too small and all the detail is lost but then too big and the repeat is almost too simple. I want to find the perfect balance of complexity and detail combined with colour, form and a hint of structure!
