I was sitting in a car park the other evening and I noticed a silhouette of some leaves against a pale wall and wondered if I could create a design out of them. So I took some extremely grainy photos on my mobile phone and created an illustration from them. I had also previously taken a (slightly better) photo of some Bamboo in my garden with the intention at some point of creating a pattern, so thought I could combine the two.
Once the illustrations were complete I began to think about colours and must have changed my mind about 20 times and still haven't decided on the final colour way, so may use all 4!
I'm pleased with the result, it reminds me of animal markings in their natural habitat.
