Painting solid lines and shapes with gouache is fun, but I have to use so much more paint to get a consistent, sharp line than I do with watercolour or ink. It's a nice medium but I'm definitely seeing drawbacks. On the other hand I like the tactile texture this paint can create. Day 287. #margotsdailypattern #mdpyear2

I don't usually photoshop my patterns but I felt I needed some precision here for the faux-polka dots. I think this would be really cute printed super tiny on a dress or something, so you get a surprise discovering the dots are planets when you look close. Day 284. #margotsdailypattern #mdpyear2

If only all patterns could be done this fast. 😬 Got a phone holder thing finally! Now to fix my light set up so the temperature doesn't keep changing. πŸ€” Floaty people that you can assume are alive and breathing in space. Let's keep it positive.

I mixed way too much pink acrylic paint for the last pattern so I tried to use it for this one too. I've always found representing space in art challenging, despite all the space design work I've done. There's just so few shapes and colours we associate with space, even though it's full of so much possibility; kind of an interesting contrast. So I figure one way to create something fresh and to pull myself out of the box of stars and black is to use colour in a way people don't usually use for space. Hence the pink constellations in the last pattern and the pink nebulous clouds in this one. Day 281 #margotsdailypattern #mdpyear2

I decided to try a different theme today to take a break from florals. I feel like I know how I want those to look and coming up with new patterns was becoming tedious. So here's some super fabulous comets instead. We'll see how I do with a space theme over the next few days. β­οΈβ˜„οΈ Day 278 #margotsdailypattern #mdpyear2
