Pattern Development: Abstract Garden

One thing that never fails to inspire me is my materials. Whether it's a waxy crayon, the way watery paint splatters, or in this case, my digital brush collection, I can always look to my materials to lead the way when I don't have specific inspiration in mind. This scratchy rake brush is from a set of lettering brushes by Kyle T. Webster, and this is the very first time I've used it. I was feeling a sort of impressionist vibe and just kind of went with it, and in the end had a painterly abstract pattern that I'm really happy with :).
