Trees Pattern Design Wallpaper

To create this trees wallpaper design I used old tree illustrations as a starting point for these designs. I wanted to be able to colour each of the trees differently, meaning a different layer for each tree. I traced the tree illustrations as paths, so that they are now scalable vectors. Meaning I could produce designs with giant trees, which would be great used in a commercial location.

Initial designs had the trees in a row – as below. Which perhaps would have worked as a border, but didn’t look remotely like a real woodland with jumbled trees.

The breakthrough was to simplify the design by reducing the number of trees, then to mix up the positioning to be more like a woodland – as below.

The early designs use fairly natural colour palettes. It was when I coloured one of the trees lilac, that later designs really began to look interesting. My favourite is the one with big lilac trees and an orange background. Totally unreal but fun.
