Foxes, Gouache and Polish Patternmaking.

So recently I've been thinking about patterns a lot. I mean A LOT. William Morris, Klimt, Polish Paper-cutting etc etc. I also decided I wanted to try my hand at some more things I've never done before. I like these foxes I've been making, share a couple with you here. I still have a bit to learn when it comes to gouache I think, but it was a fun start. My first two attempts went smoothly, but then a third ended in mush. I always do underdrawings as well, and I find that the gouache isn't quite thick enough to cover over the pencil line (at least as I'm using it) But hell, those colors are vibrant and  beautiful. I'm going to keep playing around with it... UNTIL I HAVE A ROOM FULL OF FOXES. Haha. yes.

Go ahead with your rolling inspiration! Thanx for sharing with us.
