What are Organic patterns?

Insta video: Organic vs Geometrical

Organic patterns are designs that are repetitive but do not follow any symmetry or graph pattern. You will see loose, wavy lines and nothing perfect or straight.

How to Paint Organic Patterns:

Painting organic patterns is easy, comforting and the best part- wonky. Your lines do not need to be precise. Wonky, wiggly, curvy, and uneven is the name of the game

I love using brush pens as watercolors for these patterns.

TIP: Use two or three markers of similar tones to create a soft subtle variation in design!

Some great shapes to paint Organic patterns with are: hearts, circles, thick lines, and curved shapes.

CONCLUSION: Why should you paint Organic Patterns?

I highly recommend painting organic patterns in your sketchbooks! The whole process is very relaxing, calming and it quickly helps me unwind after a long day.

You don’t have to measure and sketch out your page beforehand, the elements all do not need to match and be the same size, yet when they are all put together there is a simple beauty to the pattern.
