Scottish Flock

A holiday in Scotland inspired this piece.  It was an experiment into transforming shapes and motifs using Adobe illustrator.  It depicts various regional elements, celtic themes such as tartan, celtic knots , thistles and mountains.  I also wanted to experiment with overlaying a limited amount of  translucent colours to produce more.

The design was screen printed onto heavy canvas, using a textural mixture of flock and foil for the line.  The final piece was made up of the four different colour samples creating one, sewn together and put on a stretcher.
