Molly Williams – My new blog site

So here is my new blog site independent of my website www.mollywilliams.co.uk

Why a separate site to blog and chat? – well for exactly that reason! I wanted a place to put my work in progress, research notes, links and other things that I hope will be interesting to read!

This week I have finished a new design that as an A2 print will bring life, colour and energy to any space. The design is inspired by Turkish ceramic jugs and plates – so I though I would show you how I set about drawing and designing this piece.

I began with lines on paper – curves that intersect and create movement on the page. Plates in a variety of sizes make the perfect templates.

I use marker pens and especially love Promarkers. Choosing a colour palette is important – orange, blue, green (dark and mint) and cinnamon make great visual music!

With lines in place and overlaid with black marker and colours chosen I was ready to start doodling. I had a general plan in mind however usually the patterns tend to flow as the design grows

The finished design ready to be scanned and sent for Giclee printing!

This print is for sale at my Etsy shop – please click on the logo if you would like to be directed to the site:
