Marine Mash-up

For our May Bootcamp assignment we did a piece for the Home Decor market, specifically  plates. we were to do sketches of crustaceans and patten put them together and do what Lilla called a Marine mash-up for our plate design. i started off sketching based on photos: 11209643_10203119326858698_5193012020014386383_n 11238972_10203106698623000_3899760490537881033_n

I liked the warm florals with the navy crustaceans but i wanted more water/nautical color  so i went this direction
