Pattern & Repetition

Today we were taught by Sean Dawson and Jo Mitchell. They showed us work by a number of artists who have worked with repeat patterns, including William Morris. We were then asked to draw an image on a square piece of white paper. I chose to trace a drawing of my great aunt Pembe which I already had in my sketchbook. We were then told to add other contrasting elements to the image which I did. Sean and Jo made several photocopies of our drawings. Some of the photocopies were reduced in size and we used these to play around with and find patterns.
