Midcentury Inspired Dark Flower Pattern

This is a stylised flower pattern that could, I suppose, have graced the pattern books of shops mid-century since it uses mid-century inspired motifs and colours from that period.

According to my notes, the colours used were montella for the background and then moss green, mustard, Post Office red and olive for the motif and with a stroke of chocolate and buttermilk. The effect I was trying for was to create a pattern that looked both lush and rich and one that had a sense of depth.  It is the sort of design that could be used for textile for fashion or for soft furnishing.

If you would like to see larger versions of these designs and my other work then you can do so on my Flickr page, a link to which is here
