Spring is coming! It is officially here, but it has been cold here in Colorado. It snowed here this week after teasing us with a few days of nice weather. The next few days will be fantastic!
I found time to create this week which is always lovely! My goal is to create a pattern three times a week. Having this goal will help me sit down and draw.
March passed so quickly without me working on any of my artistic pursuits. I did not create anything between homeschooling, working as a virtual assistant, and trying to keep my house from a constant state of chaos. One lesson that I did learn is that I NEED to create! I am a calm and collected mother and wife when I spend some time making artwork or writing. Ha! My husband once asked me, “Ruthanne, have you created lately?”
Because of the wild and crazy month of March, I have decided to make a goal to create three patterns a week. This seems like the plan is a little too big, but I want to shoot for something that seems impossible.
My first pattern this week was with more ladybugs. I used Procreate and then moved it into Affinity to create the design. I have to admit; I love creating digital art because my tech heart gets to learn new computer techniques that I never knew before. For example, in Procreate, I used the drawing assist and symmetrical drawing to create this pattern.
Maybe that could be a tutorial in the future.
Do you have any creative weekly goals? If so, I would love to hear them.
