|Hand-drawn herbs in my Sketchbook|
While I was drawing these herbs, I stumbled across a plant that did inspire me: Dill Flowers! I had no idea that the flowers for dill were so pretty: Delicate spirals of little buds radiating from slender stems. I was finally really excited about an idea for this theme! So I ditched the sketchbook drawings and went back to Illustrator and began drawing my version of these pretty plants.
|Finished Dill Flowers Pattern|
There is so much detail in these pretty little plants that I decided not to add too many other elements to the pattern. A simple pale yellow circle pattern over classic white creates a subtle print behind the dill flowers. A funny thing does seem to happen though in a zoomed out view of the print: The yellow in the spirals almost create a blur of color around the stems. For this reason I wanted to share a close up of the design so you could see the detail of the flowers.
