Yeah I adore this kind of art..full your eyes and mind with colors and feelings instead of dull empty walls..I wish I can do such art but I guess I don't have what it takes.

beautiful and the detail is captivating. But it feels upside down because of the way some of the shapes are pointing my eye keeps getting stuck in the lower right corner. Is that were you started or ended?

It has taken about thirty years for me to use colours like this so don`t worry it`ll happen eventually - I now group my pens into colour groups and then just stick with that one bundle such as purples/blues or autumnal yellow/reds etc its a LOT easier this way

well.. uhm, traditional artisans sell patterns all the time to people who wanna replicate or such.
If you search around for platforms on the net; you may well find hobbyists or small time quilters who do it for leisure or as a side business :)
