Parakeet Paradise Pattern Collection

I've gone just a little bit tropical for this Parakeets artwork and accompanying surface pattern design collection: Parakeet Paradise.

Parakeet Paradise pattern collection by Lotti Brown

I wanted to create a dramatic and colourful collection with a tropical feel, perfect for summer style all year round!

I was inspired by some Crocosmia I drew from my own garden. A really easy plant to grow: hardy, and tolerates all kinds of neglect. But it looks so wonderfully tropical!

Tropical crocosmia drawings, from my own garden

I decided to put the flowers with some parakeets, for an exotic jungle feel.

Parakeet drawings

And also some begonia flowers and leaves, drawn from a beautiful houseplant I have in my home.

Tropical look from a common houseplant - begonia drawings

Once I had drawn and coloured the flowers and birds by hand, I scanned them into the computer, and started to create first an artwork...

Then continuing to create matching patterns and designs to be used for fabrics and wallpapers.

You can see the final patterns below...

I really love the dark, dramatic backgrounds which set the bright colours off - tropical, but with year-round appeal.

Upholstered Chairs with Lotti Brown Fabric

I was so excited when Rebecca of forty-winks.net contacted me yesterday to show me how she'd used one of my fabrics to upholster an antique chair, for sale in her new upholstery business...

Rebecca tracks down beautiful antique chairs and gives them a new lease of life with colourful fabrics and her fantastic upholstery skills. The chairs are one-off pieces, and Rebecca can also create other bespoke upholstery, curtains and soft-furnishing projects for you...

Take a look at how stunning this chair looks, newly upholstered in my 'Folkish Woodland Birds' fabric... I wish I could have it for myself!!

Thanks so much to Rebecca for sharing her awesome work with us :)

Tropical Design Trend - Behind the Scenes

I've been working to design for future print and pattern trends coming in Spring-Summer 2017 - and I've been looking at brilliantly coloured tropical trends with the design community at 'Pattern Observer'

I'm going to take you behind the scenes, just a little bit, and show you how some of these designs came about...

Tropical Jungle collection by Lotti Brown - click on the image to see a larger version

I decided to create a small tropical collection, 'Tropical Jungle', for the theme, with my motifs centred around some fantastically colourful orchids I have at home...

Gorgeous orchids were one of the main inspirations to this collection

I drew these many times from every different angle, and drawing both the individual blooms, and whole stems, and separate leaves and foliage to create enough motifs for the collection...

I also wanted some birds in my jungle, so drew some tropical-looking birds from artist source-books, so that I could also add these into the design...

Bird and flower drawings for my tropical collection

Although the colours you see here usually don't end up in the final design, I like to colour my drawings as this gives depth and texture to the design, and often creates the starting point for my colour palette, too.

How some of my orchid drawings developed into the completed pattern

In the image above, you can see how my drawings are scanned into the computer, in colour, then arranged about the screen, using Adobe Illustrator, to create the pattern.

You can see how the original colours (left) were enhanced to become the very vibrant hues in the later part of the design process (right)...

Individual colours, and the whole colour palette, can be tweaked many times until I'm happy with the effect.

I built out the collection with drawings of peace-lilies, and  the foliage of the 'lipstick plant', (both of which I have as houseplants at home) to create a collection of patterns that I felt continued the theme but gave a bit of variety too.

So here are the finished designs - click on the images below to see them larger...

And to see the detail...

EDIT - September 2016

These designs are now available exclusively through Lemon Head Prints - please do get in touch with them if you'd like this design printed on fabric or wallpaper, or have any other ideas about how you would like to use this design.

New Geranium Designs

I just wanted to show you my new geranium design...

This is a pretty geranium with ornamental leaves, and wonderful delicate flowers, balanced on long, graceful stems. It sits on my studio windowsill, bringing me a little reminder of summer...

Red-leaved geraniums design

I drew out all the leaves and flowers, individually, with pen on paper, then hand coloured in ink, before taking it into Adobe Illustrator to play about with it, and create the finished design...

Do you remember these leaves I was drawing several weeks ago..?

Some of my geranium leaf drawings, the ones that ended up in this design are the bright red ones, seen slightly beneath the pile of drawings in the large image.

Well, this is how they ended up...

You can find this geranium artwork design in my art store plus at my additional stockists including in my Redbubble store and Displate store.

Pattern Updates

I just wanted to share a few of the recent happenings here at Lotti Brown Designs - there's currently lots of behind-the-scenes work going on, as I work to bring my patterns to more products and places...

I've found time this week to finish off a few drawings, and have been scanning a whole stack of artwork into the computer, ready to start designing with, soon...

Lovely autumn golds, greens and browns in all my drawings at the moment...

I've also been admiring these beautiful placemats and coasters, in my 'Fantasy Fall Flowers' design, which are available from my Zippi store (international delivery from UK)

Gift idea - 'Fantasy Fall Flowers' placemats and coasters by Lotti Brown Designs (available at Zippi)

And with Christmas only a couple of months away now (...yes, I know!!) I've been busy working with some seasonal designs, which I'm sure you will be seeing more of in the coming weeks...

I have a few days off next week, so I'm hoping for some sunny weather to enjoy some proper relaxation (no DIY this time!) and to perhaps get out and about a few places for some seasonal inspiration, too... :)

New Surface Pattern Design Collection - Japanese Garden

A while back I shared a behind the scenes look of the development of a fabric collection and now I'm pleased to be able to share the finished designs in the final collection...

I've shared some of the detail in the designs in the sneak peeks below... click on the images to enlarge them for a closer look...
