Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone, I hope you have all had a magical one! I have come back home for the festive period to see my family and friends. I've thoroughly enjoyed it and used the opportunity to take photos around Lichfield for my Surface Pattern Course.

My Dad and I went out on Boxing Day around the Cathedral and Beacon Park and I snapped away taking as many pictures as I possibly could. The course I'm doing is good because it ask you to look at one aspect of a photograph and draw it in an array on different techniques. I really enjoy this as it’s experimental some techniques could work and some may not but in away there is no pressure... it's just having a play. Below are some of my favourite pictures that I collected, Some Photos I took because I loved the pattern, some for composition and some for colour:

From these I selected two photographs and created a colour swatch for both of them. It's really interesting to see the variety of colours.

I just need to get cracking now and see what motifs I can develop.

Have a lovely rest of your christmas break and a happy new year
