Feeling Fruitful

Fruity prints have been everywhere of late and wanted to do my own spin on it. I love the fruits that actually taste so much better in summer when the sun is shining and you’re lounging in the garden with a good book (and preferably a mojito.) I used slightly watered-down gouache paints to create my fruits, scanned them in and neatened in Photoshop, then used Illustrator to create the repeat.

I rescaled the actual pattern on each to give all three a fresh feel, using a modern summer palette. (I LOVE the blue one, I’d have a dress made in this print given the chance!)
