    Hello! Not long ago I promised to tell and show how I paint patterns. I hope that my recommendations will help someone else :)

    First, you cover with the main colour the piece of the clothes you are going to patterns. You don't need to make the transition from light to dark very accurate , with further development of ornament everything will look neat. 01.1.jpg 02.2.jpg

    You paint the main large elements of ornament ( curls ) distributing them evenly on the cloth. Then , you start drawing smaller elements of ornament - flowers , leaves. 04.JPG

    You apply the technique of glaze ( a thin transparent layer of paint ) if you want to add darker shades in the folds. I glazed in burnt umber. 09.JPG 08.JPG

    Then you correct the pattern with spots, painting spots where the pattern is drawn with errors. Spots also add light and colour where we feel it is necessary. I painted spots in Neapolitan yellow, warm green, cool blue -green. Picturing spots can simulate carpet or velvet nap. 12.jpg 12.jpg 11.JPG

    You paint a shade applying the technique of glazing. The pattern is ready . I used acrylic and tempera ( but not oil tempera ) .
    Good luck in your painting! IMG_1717.JPG IMG_1716.JPG
