Day 6 – Argyle

So, I’ve been very literal with the topic of argyle, and decided to create an argyle pattern with a focus on colour and texture. I think argyle is a pretty daggy pattern, and I did what I could to make it a little more interesting and attractive. I started with this photo of a gorgeous screen print by artist John Hoyland.

So I took the colours, and inspiration from the painted texture, and came up with this:
