The second intermediate brief for the summer school was titled Animal Print and was to bring different prints together to create a confluent clash. I tried out different ways of approaching the design but in the end decided that merging the patterns into a stripe suited the finished product better. Colouring the design into the palette given was quite challenging as it was difficult to get away from the traditional animal colours. I found that by keeping the background quite subdued i could add splashes of the brighter colours as highlights. This worked perfectly on this particular design and has created a pleasing looking final product.
