Pattern Design: Linear Patterns

In the 2nd lesson of 'Pattern Design for Artists' we begin exploring linear repeating patterns.
After making a quick stamp to trial a design we used it to make 1 dimensional patterns.
The above image shows the set up for printing as I was taught by Eleanor Hannan  www.eleanorhannan.com. It is such an efficient way to stamp, paint-wise and time-wise. Thank you Eleanor for so generously sharing your knowledge. 

Elisha is developing designs based on the geometric shapes of buildings.

Sarah is working with natural patterns on rocks.

Connie is developing hummingbird based designs.
The assignment was to produce 20 different repeating patterns with their 1st design.

That print system was very efficient. Interesting patterns are already emerging, I see!
