African sketches

Made some sketches on African theme. Don’t know how to use them for textile design yet, need to wait for some enlightment.

Original African textile designs are simple and have a sense of rythm. Tribal culture in general is very much based on ‘rythm’, probably reflecting a heartbeating. Have a look on my African textils collection on http://www.pinterest.com/marinaalin/african-textils/ if you’re interested.

Forest Gifts design

I took my drawings of forest fruits – berries, hazelnuts, wild mushrooms, and pine cones – to create these designs. I wanted them to look sketch-like and airy. I wanted to treat gifts from the forest delicately. Forest was always kind to people providing them with food, and with wood to build and warm up houses. Woods are also a source of fresh air and a home for wildlife. Let’s be thankful to forests.

This is the first real design I made. Saying ‘real’ I mean that I used my imagination and went experimenting with different ways of filling up the space and colouring it. The basis is traditional Islamic geometry which can be found on walls of mosques and on other Islamic art objects.

My goal was to make it closer to European perception leaving the pronciples of divine proportion untouched. I feel like I made it, so far it is one of my favourite works.
