Topic: Sketch Challenge
Another balanced design that calls for elegance is found in OWH bonus sketch B13:
As usual, I started by selecting an illustration to use. In this case it was a rub-on floral which I applied to a dotted background.
I wanted a background to pull colors from the floral and came to select a blue lattice. This led to the choice of some blue and white twine.
For the yellow I used a mottled paper in the deep background and a light script paper for a mid-ground layer.
I think this has a romantic feel to it - maybe because of the script that looks like it could be from a love letter.
