Abstract pattern design made with watercolor.
Inspired on bugambilias, this beautiful flower reminds me so much of my childhood. My mother used to own and run a plant nursery when I was little, so I am happy to have learned a thing or two about plant names and their care.
This one you can find in most cities around Mexico. It grows in many colors like magenta, yellow or white but I am particularly obsessed with the gorgeous orange-pink shade. They are also sometimes referred to as "paper flower" because the bracts are thin and papery.
Loved that the final result of this design has a modern look to it.
Take a quick look to my pinterest board on bugambilias.
Seamless pattern design inspired by one of my favorite flowers. Handrawn with ink and vectorized. The perfect touch for living room accesories, bedding or kitchen ware.
Rainy days are perfect for staying in the studio exploring all kinds of textures. Some people get the blues when it rains but I am from the desert of Chihuahua where people literally prays for rain, so any rainy day was a happy day in my childhood, we used to get out to play and get wet.
This design was created by rolling a big round brush with watercolor over paper. Loved the double color shades. I think the final pattern looks sweet on fabric or wallpaper.
Nothing like a fresh juice in the morning. Believe it or not, a lot people still drink coke for breakfast, that is so not good you guys.
Visit my blog to learn the process of this design, It started by literally stamping real oranges with ink over paper, then drew other ones with watercolor and used some salt for the texture.
Dancing is one of my biggest passions. I tried to play around here and make the watercolor shapes dance a bit in this design.
Anybody should practice more dancing, it is good for the body and soul. I am currently exploring meditation through body movement and I am loving it.
This design would also be fun to see on gift wrapping paper or clothes.
Wouldn't it be nice to see this pattern on a rug? I had a lot of fun exploring with mark making. I used ink and markers to create all kinds of interesting shapes that together formed a visual rhythm.
Coral reefs are currently threatened by climate change. If we do not stop polluting our oceans we will only see them in sophisticated prints.
This one was illustrated with watercolor. I might be uploading a white and red version later.
