doughnuts and more; sweet things patterns

doughnut pattern painted with watercolours on white background

mmm, doughnuts. when i was painting these it gave me a serious craving for some. good thing i wasn’t painting from life ..they wouldn’t have lasted long! i was thinking too, maybe doing a piece with all the sweet things that isn’t a pattern, but rather a collection of what i’ve painted. we’ll see.

i find it ever so soothing yet addictive making patterns. the whole process of doing so too, from thinking to what i want in it, painting the individual elements, and the putting together of the actual painting. it’s rekindled my love of painting which i am so grateful for. i’ve wanted a ‘reason’ to get back into and better at drawing and painting as i feel i kind of abandoned it for a while there.

painting is actually kind of how i got into collage too. i was looking to add a bit more dimension into my work, and collage turned out to be the perfect thing for me. watercolour and gouache has always been my thing, though i do like to use a bit of acrylic here and there too. i’ve never really been able to get into oils, no matter how hard i try. maybe that’s something i’ll get into later in life. i’d definitely love to learn more as oils are a fascinating medium.

anyway! here’s the (doughnut and other) patterns i’ve been working on.

update: the doughnut patterns are available to buy as prints, iphone cases, throw pillows, tote bags and more.
