It was fun to play around with a variety of patterns in this sofa sketch. First I collected actual samples to use as I did the drawings. Working with actual fabric samples makes it is easier to draw the different characteristics and flavors of the patterns. Then a quick sketch of five distinct patterns was completed before drawing them on the pillows in the final sofa sketch. The patterns include a paisley, small flower, diagonal line, zig-zag and checkered. The values of the patterns were also varied as they were drawn.
