Design Taken From Painting
The Two Jugs design began as a canvas I painted in 2013. I liked the jug elements but felt they were too spaced out. Cutting out the jugs, I could move them closer and overlap them to produce a more interesting interaction. Duplicating the jugs and slightly altering them meant there wouldn’t be such an obvious pattern repeat.
There are three sets of colourways, A, B and C. Design A uses the same jug colours from the painting, but with different background colours. For design B I recoloured the jugs to be blue. Finally design C, I made the larger jug creamy white which has produced an interesting engraving style.
There are a total of 24 different background colours which I have tried combining with each of the designs. Roll over each photo to find out the code.
I used Adobe Illustrator to explore yet more combinations, by altering how the layers blend with the backgrounds. I have detailed the blending methods used in the two digit codes for each design, so that they could be replicated or altered to suit a client’s wishes…
