Aff411 Fish

I got into making patterns by being fascinated about the repeating on a regular basis of a motif and this is, of course, what patterns are all about and what makes them a pattern rather than a picture.

Although I have recently tried to make patterns with much larger motifs, I still prefer to look at a surface covered by a regular and quick repeating design. There is something almost hypnotic about seeing a design repeated across a large area, and this is particularly so when part of the design or, perhaps, just one element is depicted differently.

In this design I have tried to create fish sitting together in boxes but with some of them placed at a 90° angle. The way that the fish are created, as well as the colour scheme, is mid-century but the arrangement perhaps owes a little more to more modern aspects of pattern making. However, this is not to say that similar patterns cannot be found during the fertile, early mid-century era.

If you wish, you can also see larger versions of this and, of course, my other designs and patterns for interiors on my Flickr page, a link to which is here.
