All of these sketches of patterns were copied in pieces from or inspired by Selvedge and National Geographic.

cup and pallette

On the same page as these sketches, I wrote that I enjoy the idea that Agnes Emery creates a “palette du mois” (palette of the month). I commented that I have been doing a palette of the week here, more or less. This week I felt that yesterday’s inspiration posts were leading me toward the vintage cookware-y palette above. I also decided to pull colored pencils back into my repertoire.
