Llew Mejia: Titillating Tulip Toiles

This week tulips are the subject and I thought they were a suitable flower to make a couple of toiles out of because of the Dutch countryside being a perfect subject for the landscaped nature of the traditional toile pattern.

 I ended up with two patterns this week because I made a couple larger tulip icons that didn't really fit into the dutch scenery pattern. I wanted to use the classic blue color to resemble Dutch dinnerware. It was actually pretty challenging trying to render something that had to appear like a loose semi realistic landscape, I am no Van Gogh, but I tried my best.

Tomorrow we will have the talented Alyssa Nassner  joining us for our guest post of the week, it should be good, stay tuned!
