Patterns and Motifs

These are my version of drawings found in The Encyclopedia of Patterns and Motifs - these being Peruvian textiles. And these are some with various alterations.
I drew a picture of an onion being chopped and a watery eye for an illustration Friday contest, the word strong I think, but I didn't like it so I didn't enter it. I've since done a paint job on the top. I used a hand made stamp to make marks and painted over when dry. I used brusho inks and it could be used as a background page now.

Above. I've combined the fish with a photo of some transfer printed fabric which was based on the sea
