We took over for Janet at Lark Textile Design in 2014 and some of the patterns live on. There was a blue and white version of this Reflection pattern around the studio and we decided to make some grey ombre versions of it. It's challenging and interesting to develop another persons work. It's such a different way of thinking. I tend to try to soften all the design elements with curves and subtle color play. But sometimes you just want a bolder look. It would be fun to create an ombre in the pattern background as well. Or maybe each dark section could be a different color.
This pattern is an advancing twill. The diagonals migrate across instead of wrapping back around on themselves.
