Mexican Talavera-inspired Tile Patterns in Watercolor

Mexican Talavera-inspired Tile Patterns in Watercolor

While these patterns were inspired from the actual venue and typical Mexican tile motifs, I wanted to make them my own by continuing with my watercolor curiosity and just going at it.

I shared the Mexican-themed anniversary invitation these tile patterns were meant for here. A palette of yellows and golds and black were used for that invitation series.

I chose a palette of blues and neutrals for this series, and let myself play with how they flowed together. A hard thing for me to do initially.

In all honesty, finalizing these painted tile illustrations took me the better part of 6 months. Sometimes I get into my head too much and overthink how things are looking and how they’re supposed to look. These are really my second attempt at them.

But when I let go of exactly how they needed to turn out, they turned out better than I imagined.

I even let myself play a bit more with how the water and paint flowed together, and came up with these interesting, flow-y tiles. They seem nice for coasters!

Looking forward to painting more of these Mexican tiles and also exploring a few designs of my own.
