playing around with surface pattern....


these images are part of a study on tea shops and cafes that I undertook for my MA in Textiles, where hearing threads of conversation made me think of beaded strings, the background layer was acrylic pallet knifed onto paper, the colour mixed to emulate tea, I then set about building various layers with Photoshop, just playing around with some of the exploration work I had undertaken in my sketchbooks





I had sketched, with ink, many the chairs I had found in the tea shops I had visited



wanting to see what blue looked like to balance out the 'tea' colour



gingham had shown its face in several of the tea shops  and so went on to appear  in my images



the original background before adjusting it with Photoshop
