When looking for inspiration, Huset is one of my first stops.
An amazing shop that carries everything and features over 60 Scandinavian Designers. Although, I often put many of the items sold here on my personal wish lists, I also frequent the site for inspiration for my lessons. The modern clean representations of pattern, overlapping images and subject matter make for wonderful examples. The above platters each have their own feeling and techniques. Repetition in one, organic shapes in another, geometric compositions and even a modern picnic feel. Many can relate to the imagery and imagine creating their own work of art. smallShop Artists recently did ink and watercolor paintings exploring pattern.
