Abstract Fabric designing using Pencils
I have recently been inspired to create a range of fabric designs around abstract shapes using coloured pencils. The shapes have been heavily influenced by triangles and I have mixed some abstracted real images like hands or flowers or road signs with clean lines.
The pencils I have used have been Faber Castel Polychromos and I am very pleased with the colour rendition after scanning and loading for fabric.
The designs have maintained the shaded aspects and depth I was hoping to achieve.
I have used the excellent fabric printers at Spoonflower and these swatches are all on their basic combed cotton.
