I had the amazing opportunity to join the Pattern Observer team as a guest expert for their Textile Design Lab.
After a studio visit and an interview, I made a tutorial on different painting techniques: How to create and prepare an artwork for printing, Color and Trend Interpetation. You can read the interview here.
It was a great experience and a wonderful opportunity to share some of my knowladge with other designers and give some tips and advices about the design process.
Here are some pictures from the tutorial I made for the blog about the use of watercolor inks and a how-to on artwork preparation for print. You can also read more about "How to Use Watercolor Inks" here.
