Woodland Prints

One of my favorite features in Corel Painter is the ability to capture a pattern and use it either with the brush tools or as a fill.  When I needed a coordinate print for the Felted Plaids collection, I turned to an old leaf print I had done a long time ago and never used.  After playing around with the brushes for a while, I managed to get these cool patterns – they remind me of a forest – or the Scottish Highlands – because of the branches and twigs that are in each and every square.

Plaids have squares.  The woodland prints have squares…so I decided on another square to round out the collection (couldn’t quite resist writing that).  This one has a subtle vine print on the background and each of the squares is actually made up from the scanned and manipulated Daniel Smith watercolor squares in the first post.  Moody Blues Random Checks TN
