Forest Melody Pattern 

I chose 3 different color palettes that consisted of both warm and cool colors. After seeing the colors together I selected the first column of color swatches. 

With the selected colors,  I took the line drawing of the pattern and applied the colors using Photoshop to get a general idea of the color relationship. I decided I wanted a more limited color palette. 

For the final solution I chose green and pink because the color relationship works well together and I believe it can be used on a variety of surfaces. I decided on making the background pink and leaving some of the motifs white with hints of green for contrast.

For the final image I did all the line work traditionally with brush and ink. Then painted the background an the motifs using gouache.
