Brrr! Winter might be a bit late this year but it’s certainly making it’s presence known now. The cold weather is playing having with my sinuses. Although I’m feeling a lot better now it was a different story a few weeks ago.
I spent an entire Sunday in front of the TV with a head that felt like it was going to explode so I tried to take my mind off it with a bit of doodling and sketching. This assortment of winter woolies, drawn with pencil and fine-liner, is the result.
Naturally, my mind was already working on what kind of patterns I could make and when I felt better a few days later I managed to get the mittens coloured and turned them in to this fun seasonal pattern. I was going to colour them with watercolours but I decided to scan the line drawings in and digitally paint them instead to get the effect I wanted.
I still need to work on the woolly hats but I think I might try a mix of hats and mitts first. Thinking I might need a bigger variety of hats before I can work on a hat only design. For the moment though, I’ve already added my Winter Woolies Mittens design to my Society6, Redbubble & Zazzle stores for an assortment of products that are perfect for those winter months. Enjoy!
