Hi all the lovely readers,

I’m Nandita Singh, a freelance surface pattern designer from India. I love bright colours and so you’ll often find a riot of colours in my work. I love to draw motifs — sometimes inspired by my Indianness, and sometimes by the nature and surroundings, and sometimes (honestly) by the works of the great pattern designers too… Yes, inspiration can come from anywhere, but the final output should be yours and yours alone.

So, today here, I’ll just start with my one of the latest motif that is inspired by my own collection of beautiful bangles! As you all know that we Indians love to wear colourful bangles, specially glass bangles!

I made a circle first — with the help of my own bangle which I’m wearing ( yes, that’s what inspiration and motivation is), and then filled the outer border with tiny leaves and finally ending it with two more outlines. But you see I was not satisfied with this so I thought of putting some gems and semi-precious stones and pearls in the form of small and big dots and circles! Now, this was the final motif I wanted.

Satisfied as I was, I tried different versions of this… Playing with different colours and techniques is very essential here, as you never know what the final result may come out to be.

Blogtoberfest ~ Day 7

I love looking at others artwork.

I am always in awe at how they have achieved a certain mood with color or how they have created a certain texture or line.

I love a piece of work that I can get lost in. My eyes wandering in and out always discovering something new. My favorite piece is one that I can walk away from, but on my return find a little something I missed the first time around. That is the type of art I want for my home. This is the type of artist I can only aspire to be!
Below are a few artists that are inspiring me right now

This Vancouver based artist is it! I love the texture, juxtaposition of hard and soft lines and the free-flowing nature of this painting.
