Poimintoja – Kohti korkeuksia

The Finnish name of the pattern refers to how these flowers are ”aiming towards the heights”. The original sketch is a part of my sketchbook made for the Brooklyn Art Library’s Sketchbook Project. It is the world’s largest collection of artists’ and designers’ sketchbooks. The sketch was made intuitively, my only goal was to fill the sketchbook with different kinds of colors, surfaces, and technique tests. First, I painted papers, then cut out elements and arranged those on the page of the sketchbook. The final pattern is made on a computer. I wanted to make a vector version with a texture on the surface of the elements since I liked the uneven feel of the painted sketch. Depending on the colors of the pattern, on a small scale, the texture can be just a blending detail, or on a bigger scale, more rough and visible.
