ARCHITECTURAL PATTERN BY THE SEASIDE
This project was mainly based on the beach huts at Hastings, Bulverhythe, Brighton and Hove. My designs were inspired by the differences of the beach huts, although they are regimented and sit perfectly alongside each-other, each one has its own personality and characteristics, whether that is its colours, the stripes being vertical or horizontal, the door/roof shape, old or new, but mostly how it had been constructed. My final print ideas came from collaging different aspects of each beach hut together, to create an abstract geometric repeat pattern in the popular and classic British seaside colours of red and blue. In my smaller samples I also experimented with bold areas of colour, interpreting smaller areas of the wooden details using the breakdown printing process to create organic textural elements.
