Art Deco Patterns

I decided to play around with Art Deco patterns more and see how they can be incorporated into an illustration piece.

The first two patterns are from secondary sources, printed from the internet but the last is painted by myself. They all are created using watercolours; the thin black lines are made using highly pigmented watercolour and a size 0 brush to get small, smooth, controlled lines.

I like these pieces a lot and would like to work more in this style as I think it’s similar to my own map idea (earlier post) so is quite original and it’s also fun to work with.
